Lalu uses Urdu verse to convey a message that he has not lost his nerve

Patna: RJD national president Lalu Prasad on Saturday used Urdu poetry to convey the message that he has not lost his verve despite failing health and his incarceration. He is serving sentences in a number of fodder scam cases. He is lodged in a Ranchi hospital for a number of debilitating ailments

Outlook India shared the verse on Twitter along with a video and a post by a leading English magazine.

Lalu Prasad’s bail plea was rejected by the Jharkhand High Court earlier this week.

The verse which Lalu quoted means: “I belong to a tribe of revolutionaries, a small army of those who stand for truth. It is not for nothing that I am in a fight with the order of the day, I have taken a stand for a cause.”

The former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav has been away from active politics since his conviction in December 2017 in the Deoghar treasury case. Later he was also convicted in two more cases of the multi-crore fodder scam.
