“Lalu Prasad Yadav writes letter for people of Bihar, talks about rights of Dalits, SCs, STs

1. Lalu Yadav also tweeted a letter written by him which he said was in remembrance of injustice and inequality against him.

2. Soon after Rashtriya Janata Party (RJD) chief and former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav was sentenced to three-and-a-half years of rigorous imprisonment (RI) in connection with a second fodder scam case worth Rs 89.27 lakh, a tweet went out from his official handle, saying Yadav would die happily fixing himself for social justice, harmony and equality.

3. “Rather than practicing BJP’s Simple Rule – “Follow us or We will Fix you”. I will die happily fixing myself for Social justice, harmony & equality,” the tweet said. Lalu also tweeted a letter written by him, which he said was in remembrance of injustice and inequality meted out towards him.

4. In his letter, Lalu talked about the rights of Dalits, SCs and STs. “When I was a child, we ‘lower caste’ people were not supposed to even hold our head high in front of those belonging to ‘upper castes’. I saw a ray of change when several youths joined the Jai Prakash Narayan Movement. I was one of them who jumped into the struggle against the rule, autocracy, and corruption. I was even jailed during the emergency period. That spark has ignited a fire now and will always remind people to fight against these atrocities (sic).”

5. Lalu then mentions the struggles he went through after joining the movement. “I was aware that it will not be easy since the day I jumped into the movement. I knew I will be jailed, abused and wrongly blamed, but I was sure that my personal problems will make way easy for the poor and marginalised.” Courtesy by: The Indian EXPRESS
