देश नई दिल्ली ब्रेकिंग न्यूज़

Patna 21 february (News Hunt)- Lalu Yadav was sentenced today to five years in jail and fined ₹ 60 lakh in a fifth case linked to the fodder scam.
The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader was convicted in the case last week. The case involves the illegal withdrawal of ₹ 139.5 crore from the Doranda treasury, as part of the fodder scam that took place in the 1990s, when Lalu Yadav was Chief Minister of Bihar.

The three-time Chief Minister was found guilty along with 39 others.

“I fight those who create divides. They can’t defeat us so they try to trap us in conspiracies. I have neither been afraid, nor bent before anyone. I will keep fighting. The coward will never understand the struggles of a fighter,” Lalu Yadav tweeted in Hindi.

मैं उनसे लड़ता हूँ जो लोगों को आपस में लड़ाते है
वो हरा नहीं सकते इसलिए साजिशों से फँसाते है

ना डरा ना झुका, सदा लड़ा हूँ, लड़ता ही रहूँगा
लड़ाकों का संघर्ष कायरों को ना समझ आया है ना आएगा।

On February 15, after he was sentenced, the 73-year-old leader was taken to the jail hospital in Ranchi. He may be released soon as he has already spent over three and half years in jail.
