“I have said earlier also that their greatest fear is from Bihar and hence these things are happening. It will continue till the elections but will not make any difference,” Tejashwi said reacting to the reports of CBI plea in the Supreme Court.
“We will put forth our views in the court. No matter how much they try to disturb us, we are not scared. We are clear about the way forward. We will fight and win,” the RJD leader said.
CBI wants to cancel Lalu’s bail: Nothing will happen, says Bihar deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav
Earlier today, the apex court agreed to list a petition filed by CBI challenging the grant of bail to Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Lalu Prasad Yadav in the Doranda Treasury case of Jharkhand in which the RJD leader was sentenced to five years jail term.
A bench of Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud and Justices Sanjay Karol and Manoj Misra agreed to list the matter on August 25 after additional solicitor general SV Raju, appearing for the CBI, urged the bench for an early listing of the plea.
The CBI had challenged the Jharkhand high court’s order granting bail to the 74-year-old in the case.
The former Bihar chief minister is currently out on bail due to ill health after his conviction in various fodder scam cases.
He was sentenced to five years in prison with a fine of Rs 60 lakh by a special CBI court in Ranchi in connection with the fifth fodder scam case involving embezzlement of over Rs 139 crore by Doranda Treasury.
Lalu has been convicted in five fodder scam cases pertaining to the fraudulent withdrawal of money from Doranda, Deoghar, Dumka and Chaibasa treasuries in Jharkhand.
