"To hide its failures, false rhetoric and to get votes, the BJP uses every dirty immoral trick in politics to change the public perception of its opponents", he said.

In all, there were 34 accused in the case, out whom 11 died during the course of the trial, while one turned CBI approver and admitted the crime.

In one of the corruption cases, Yadav was earlier sentenced to five years in jail and fined 2.5 million rupees (39,050 US dollars) for fraudulent withdrawal of 375 million rupees (5.86 million USA dollars) from a government treasury.

"Powerful people and powerful classes have always managed to divide society into ruling and the ruled classes".

Interestingly, Lalu drew an analogy with icons like Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King and Baba Saheb Ambedkar and said that history would have treated them as villains, had they failed in their efforts.

"The legal fight will continue". He had moved the apex court challenging the order of the Jharkhand High Court which had dismissed his bail plea. The accused are facing charges under different sections of IPC and also Prevention of Corruption Act. "Just like BJP's propaganda was busted in the 2G scam and Adarsh scam, a similar verdict will happen now", he said. Laluji has been charged with connivance as he was the finance minister then - the charge is not direct. Though the amount isn't staggering, about Rs 89.27 lakhs, it forms part of the larger, multi-crore fodder scam, wherein money was siphoned off in the name of buying cattle feed and landed in personal coffers of RJD leaders, particularly Lalu Yadav and his family members, as well as bureaucrats in the Bihar government. He will be allotted a prisoner number after the special Central Bureau of Investigation court will announce the quantum of sentence on January 3. "Bihar stands with me", he said. The agency filed the chargesheet before special judge Naresh Kumar Malhotra at the Patiala House Court. Earlier this month, the ED also questioned Bharti in connection with the case and raided three premises in Delhi belonging to Bharti and her husband, including the farmhouses located in the high-class localities of Ghitorni, Bijwasan and Sainik Farms.
