Lalu Prasad, Ailing Rashtriya Janata Dal Chief, Makes Public Appearance, Says ‘My Regime Was Not Jungle Raj’

INDIA Team Latestly|

For the first time after over three-and-a-half years of incarceration, ailing Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad inaugurated the party’s 25th foundation day virtually from Delhi on July 5. He asserted that “his regime was not jungle raj as is being projected by political rivals”. In his nearly 30-minute address to party workers and leaders, the frail looking Prasad regretted that he was unable to be physically present among them because of his ill-health. Party leaders, including his two legislator sons, and workers watched him on a large TV screen at the party headquarters in Patna. He hailed party workers and commended both his sons for their oratory skills. The ailing RJD chief, who was convicted in several fodder scam cases, came out on bail recently and has been recuperating at the residence of his elder daughter and party Rajya Sabha MP Misa Bharti in New Delhi. He was sent to Ranchi central jail, but served most his sentence in a government hospital in Ranchi for multiple ailments. Recently, he was shifted to All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi. He accused the Nitish Kumar government of rampant corruption and mismanagement of the Covid-19 crisis.
