Fodder case verdict today; 2G, Adarsh make Lalu hopeful of acquittal


New Delhi, Dec 23: As a special CBI court in Ranchi set to pronounce its verdict on Saturday in a fodder scam case involving Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav as an accused, he expressed hope that he would get a clean chit like other accused in the 2G and Adarsh scams.

"We trust and respect the judiciary. We will not let BJP's conspiracies work," Lalu said.

He said that the Bharatiya Janata Party governments since the time of Atal Bihari Vajpayee have been harassing him and his family by misusing the CBI for the past 25 years.
