Patna: After spending over ten days at Mumbai's Asian Heart Institute, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) president Lalu Prasad Yadav, returned to Patna on Monday where he would be following a strict diet before undergoing fistula surgery as suggested by his doctors.

Yadav was once again accompanied by his most trusted man in the party and legislator Bhola Yadav when he was wheeled-out of the Mumbai-Patna flight and out of the Patna Airport where his supporters filled the air with the chant of 'Lalu Yadav Zindabad'.

From the airport, the RJD chief was taken straight to 10 Circular Road, the official residence of his wife and former Bihar Chief Minister Mrs. Rabri Devi.

Talking to reporters, Bhola Yadav said that the former Chief Minister of Bihar was suffering from hemoglobin deficiency and high blood sugar level causing delay in his fistula surgery.

"He has been advised to follow a strict diet plan for the next two weeks upon which he will once again be taken to Mumbai where his physicians will decide on his readiness to undergo the operation.

As recalled, Yadav was found guilty in a host of cases related to the fodder scam and was sentenced to over seven years in prison.

Incarcerated at a Ranchi prison, the RJD chief was given a conditional six-week bail to seek medical treatment.

Already setting up the stage for seeking more furlough time on health ground, party leader Alok Mehta said that Mr. Yadav was suffering from a number of ailments and may need to go to Bangalore to seek treatment for his kidney condition.
