After conviction of RJD Chief Lalu Prasad Yadav by special CBI court in the fodder scam case, Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi took to Twitter to take a jibe on Lalu saying, ‘What you sow, so shall you reap’.

Sushil Modi was one of the petitioners, on whose PIL the Patna High Court had, in 1996, ordered a CBI inquiry into the cases relating to the fodder scam.

In a series of tweets, Modi pointed at the money- laundering cases slapped against the “whole family” of Prasad and hinted that the RJD president’s son and former deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav could be the next in line in the “process of going to jail”.

This was followed by another tweet: “I was one of the petitioner in fodder scam PIL which resulted in CBI inquiry & and monitoring by Patna H Court (sic).”

Bihar Deputy CM also came down heavily on RJD national vice- president Shivanand Tiwary, who was a co-petitioner in the PIL which led to the CBI inquiry into the fodder scam, saying he was “defending the indefensible” by coming out in support of Prasad.

“Lalu had to go to jail because of PIL filed by Shivanand, Lalan Singh and myself but now Shivanand defending the indefensible (sic),” he said.

Lalan Singh, a JD(U) leader, is currently a state minister.

Tiwary, who was expelled from the RJD shortly before the 2014 Lok Sabha polls for anti-party activities, had told a news channel that he felt he had “committed a sin” by filing the PIL, “which paved way the for Nitish Kumar to come to power in the state”.

Meanwhile, senior RJD leader Jagdanand Singh said the party was united and waiting for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, when its workers and leaders would fulfil the dreams of Prasad, who fought for social justice.

Singh also alleged that those who could not vote Prasad out of power had hatched a conspiracy against him.

On Saturday, CBI special court held RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav guilty in a case of fodder scam and reserved January 3 as the date to pronounce the quantum of punishment.

However, co-accused including former Bihar Chief Minister Jagannath Mishra was let off in the case pertaining to embezzlement of over Rs. 85 lakh from the Deoghar Treasury between 1991 and 1994.

A total of 17 accused including Lalu were pronounced guilty by the court while six were let off.

According to reports, Lalu will be taken straight to Birsa Munda jail and will be lodged there till January 3.
