Patna : With BJP mulling legal opinion about moving court for cancellation of Lalu Prasad’s bail for indulging in politics in alleged breach of bail conditions, the RJD president on Wednesday said he would have no qualms to be sent back to jail. Stating that Lord Krishna was also born in prison, Prasad said, “Today morning me and my wife Rabri Devi read in newspapers about BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi talking about cancellation of my bail and sending me to jail again. We laughed on this,” Prasad told reporters.

“There is no problem if they send me back to jail as God Krishna was also born in a prison,” Lalu, flanked by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said.

Alluding further to the mythological story, he said “BJP should not forget that Lord Krishna had slayed demonic ‘Kansa’ after coming out of jail.”

Lalu was granted bail by the SC in  2013, a couple of months after he had been convicted in the fodder scam case.

After conviction Lalu was disqualified as LS member from Saran and barred to fight election. He has bonded with Nitish Kumar and Congress to take on BJP-led NDA in crucial Bihar elections slated to take place this year..
