A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Ranchi will pronounce its verdict on the fodder scam case in which the former Bihar chief minister, Lalu Prasad Yadav is an accused.

The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo, has expressed hope that he would get a clean chit in the fodder scam case just like other accused in the 2G and Adarsh scams.

“We trust and respect the judiciary. We will not let BJP’s conspiracies work,” Prasad said.

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

Meanwhile, Prasad has reached Ranchi along with his son, Tejashwi Yadav to hear the verdict.

The fodder scam case relates to the alleged fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 95 lakh from the Deoghar treasury.

Overall, more than Rs 900 crore was reportedly siphoned off from the Chaibasa treasury for two decades.

Altogether, there were 34 accused in the case, out of which 11 died during the course of the trial and one turned CBI approver and admitted to the crime.

Former Bihar chief minister, Jagannath Mishra has already been convicted and sentenced to five years of imprisonment in one of the five fodder scam cases.
