Patna: Just after Lalu Yadav was sentenced to three-and-half years in jail in the fodder scam case, his younger son and leader of opposition in Bihar assembly, Tejashwi Yadav, on Saturday vowed to go to public with his father's message and continue to fight for the cause of the poorer section of society.

Addressing the media after holding meeting with all MLAs, MPs and senior leaders of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Tejashwi accused Narendra Modi government at the Centre and state's chief minister Nitish Kumar of conspiring to frame charges against his family to wipe out opposition from the state.

"Lalu is messiah of a common man. They know their leader has been framed by CBI at the behest of political opponents but no one can challenge our determination. We will not bow down and go to people's court after Makar Sankranti,” he said.

“The judiciary performed its duty. We will go to the High Court after studying the sentence and apply for a bail,” he added.

Rejecting claims of bickering within the RJD after Lalu's incarceration, Tejashwi said the party was united and will give a befitting reply to BJP-JDU combine in the next elections.

This is the second fodder scam related case in which Lalu was convicted and sentenced to jail along with 15 other convicts. Earlier the same court had held him guilty and sentenced him to five years in jail in 2013. He was granted bail by the Supreme Court in December, 2013.
