AIIMS discharge Lalu Prasad Yadav, he claims 'political conspiracy'
New Delhi : The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on Monday discharged RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, saying his condition has improved significantly. Former Bihar Chief Minister, however, claimed political conspiracy behind the discharge.
Lalu Prasad Yadav supporters created a ruckus in the hospital premises, alleging that it a conspiracy to kill their leader.
Lalu Prasad was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences on March 29 where a medical team comprising six doctors from the departments of surgery, cardiology, nephrology, and neurology is overseeing him.
Lalu Prasad was earlier treated at the Rajendra Institute of Medical Science (RIMS) in Ranchi.
He was admitted to RIMS on March 17 following complaints of uneasiness while he was lodged at the Birsa Munda Jail where he is serving a jail term since December 23, 2017, in connection with the fodder scam.
The former Chief Minister has been convicted in four fodder scam cases since 2013 -- the latest being the Dumka treasury case in which a special CBI court sentenced him to 14 years in jail.
