Ranchi: Rebel BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha on Saturday met former Bihar Chief Minister and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav in the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) here.
Sinha had arrived here on Friday evening.
As per the jail manual, only three people can meet a convicted person every Saturday. The ailing Lalu Yadav is under treatment at the paying ward of RIMS.
After meeting Lalu Yadav, Sinha said: “I came to enquire about Lalu Yadav’s medical condition.” He evaded the question on which party ticket he would fight the next Lok Sabha polls.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi also addressed a rally here. Although speculation was rife, the Congress president did not meet Lalu Yadav.
Lalu Yadav was convicted in three fodder scam cases in December 2017 and January 2018 and was awarded 14 years imprisonment. He has applied for bail in the Supreme Court.
