This Is How Lalu Prasad Yadav Is Running The RJD Show In Detention
A former IPS officer shares that it is a regular practice for VVIP politicians and rich businessmen to access all privileges in jail, referring to the detained RJD supremo’s recent leaked tape in which he was trying to lure an NDA MLA
A political slugfest is rampant in the state of Bihar after Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sushil Kumar Modi shared an audio tape yesterday, alleging that Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav was trying to topple the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) by luring its legislators. In a tweet, the former deputy chief minister wrote that the jailed politician was offering a ministerial berth to NDA’s Lallan Paswan for absenting himself from the upcoming speaker elections in the House.
The RJD responded to this allegation of Lalu controlling the political rebellion even in detention, calling the recording fabricated and blaming the BJP politician for his frustration of not being handed over charge of deputy CM for another term in the Bihar government. According to Chitaranjan Gagan, spokesperson for RJD, the audio is fake and an impersonated one by the rival side.
On the other hand, Janata Dal (United) spokesperson Sunil Singh said that the VVIP politician was exploiting his position and blatantly misusing his power by accessing a mobile phone in jail. On being asked if the NDA in Bihar is deliberately raking up a new controversy just ahead of the opposition party chief’s bail hearing, Singh said that it is very clear that the rival outfit is wooing Dalit ministers and putting them under pressure due to the Mahagathbandhan’s desperation to come to power in Bihar.
Meanwhile, former Indian Police Service (IPS) officer Yashovardhan Azad said that he wasn’t surprised that the jail manual was flouted. Citing similar example of people who enjoyed privileges in jail including Sahara founder Subroto Roy, Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh and Jessica case murder accused Manu Sharma, Azad said that it is a common phenomenon across Indian prisons.
