People recall Lalu’s jungle raj terror, as some ‘liberals’ try to whitewash his crimes

Following RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav’s conviction and pronouncement of the jail sentence in the fourth fodder scam, in a not so surprising move, champions of justice have decided to come out defending him, calling his conviction in scams dating over two decades back, as Modi’s vendetta politics.

Sagarika Ghose, a self-proclaimed Nehru fangirl who was slammed for peddling Congress leader’s ‘spin’ on Lalu’s imprisonment, immediately took to Twitter to call Lalu’s conviction as ‘violation of fundamental human rights’.

While Sagarika Ghose’s knowledge about law of the land is questionable, journalist and former Shiv Sena MP Pritish Nandy soon came to defend Lalu, who according to him, is not facing conviction for decades of scams.

Even as Lalu Justice League was busy defending the indefensible, many Twitter users came out reminiscing the long forgotten times of lack of law and order in Laluland.

Sadhu Yadav has a history of criminal complaints registered against him, including a complaint as late as 2016 when an FIR was registered against him for demanding Rs. 50 lakh extortion money. Back in 1999, he was also accused of rape and murder of Shilpi Jain and Gautam Singh, but Yadav reportedly refused DNA test.

Other users who grew up in Laluland also shared their stories, which sound nothing less than a Bollywood potboiler. At a time when Bihar government under Lalu struggled to pay salaries of government employees, crores were spent on his daughter’s lavish wedding.

Speaking of Lalu’s daughter, one needs to remember the time when Lalu’s daughter Ragini’s ‘friend’ Abhishek died under mysterious circumstances in Ranchi. The case which bears striking similarities to the Nitish Katara murder case because it was widely believed that Ragini and Abhishek were romantically involved and more than just friends.

Twitter user GabbbarSingh further recalled the rampant kidnapping and extortion when Bihar was ruled by Lalu Yadav and his proxies.

He added how no one felt safe in his rule.

Journalist Vivek Kaul, who spend his growing up years in Lalu’s Bihar also had similar stories to share where kids disappearing was a norm.

Lalu Justice League was back questioning Lalu’s sentence for a few scams.

Because all other crimes are forgotten if you arrest L K Advani and stop the rath yatra in the 1990s.

The swarm coming out defending Lalu, who is a convict, shows that the narrative for the 2019 elections is already being built by the Opposition. Perhaps a good time for all criminals to come out against Modi to garner support from the so-called liberal journalists and patron saints of justice.
