Patna: A day after three Telugu Desam Party (TDM) MPs met with Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) president Lalu Prasad Yadav at his residence in Patna to seek support for the TDP's no confidence motion against the Narendra Modi government, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi on Wednesday cried foul saying the meeting was political in nature and hence, a violation of the parole condition set by the court.
"Yadav earlier held meeting with senior Congress leader Ashok Gehlot to discuss poll strategy for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Then yesterday he met with three TDP MPs who were seeking his support in their battle against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Both of these meetings were political in nature and the court should immediately revoke his bail and send him back to the Ranchi jail where he belongs," the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader said.
Accusing the RJD chief of making a mockery of the judicial system by continuing to seek extension in his bail on one ground or another, Modi said that it was amply evident that Yadav had no intention of following the law and was using his time out of jail for political expediency in view of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Holding Yadav in contempt of court, Modi said that his surrogates had earlier accused the court of being biased against 'backward caste' to which the RJD chief belongs to.
"The court must review his health condition and political activities to make a quick decision on his time out of jail. A court-convicted criminal who has been banned for life from contesting any election, Yadav's bail must be revoked immediately and he should be ordered to return to the prison as decreed by the court," he said.
