PATNA: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav was rushed to the Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Science (IGIMS) after his health deteriorated on Saturday. The veteran Bihar politician, who is out on bail these days, was rushed to the hospital after he complained of breathlessness.
He is being attended by the doctors at IGIMS at the moment.
According to RJD leader Bhola Yadav, Lalu Prasad suddenly complained of breathing problem and pain in his chest after which he was admitted to the Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Science.
"Lalu is under observation..." he said, adding that Lalu Prasad has been suffering from as many as 16 ailments.
Former Bihar chief minister Lalu Yadav, who has been convicted in several fodder scam-related cases, was on May 11 granted a 6-week provisional bail by the Ranchi High Court.
The provisional bail to veteran Bihar politician was granted on 'medical grounds'.
The convicted RJD chief had by then spent nearly five months at the Birsa Munda Central Jail where he is serving a jail term since December 23, 2017, in connection with the fodder scam cases.
Lalu Prasad was admitted to RIMS in Ranchi on March 17.
He has been convicted in four fodder scam cases since 2013, the latest being the Dumka treasury case in which a special CBI court sentenced him to 14 years in jail.
