Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader and party's heir-apparent Tejaswi Yadav, shortly after a CBI court in Ranchi announced guilty verdict to his father and party President Lalu Prasad Yadav in a third case related to the fodder scam, rubbished the decision saying it did not mean much as he was now going to move the High Court and, if needed, Supreme Court to 'get justice for his father'.

The former Deputy Chief Minister and the youngest son of Lalu Prasad Yadav and Rabri Devi, met with Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik on Wednesday and handed over a memo to him to dissolve the Nitish-led NDA government saying law and order had collapsed in the state and atrocities against Dalits and minorities had skyrocketed with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar taking cues from the Sangh Parivar.

Yadav also accused the Chief Minister and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of 'framing' his father in false fodder scam cases to settle political scores from him.

Insisting his father and other membes of the family were completely innocent of all charges and were the victims of a massive witch-hunt launched by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his BJP cohorts, the young RJD leader vowed to knock the door of the High Court to appeal CBI court's decisions and even go to the Supreme Court if the situation warranted.

Tejaswi Yadav, whose stint as Bihar's Deputy Chief Minister came to a screeching halt after Chief Minister Nitish Kumar pulled the rug underneath the Mahagathbandhan government last July, also faces a host of scrutiny in cases involving amassing properties worth several crore rupees without ever actually holding a steady job or business in his life. His mother and former Bihar CM Rabri Devi and sister-brother-in-law duo Misa Bharti and Shailesh Kumar also face similar charges.
