Rabri Devi to lead RJD

Rabri Devi, wife of incarcerated RJD chief Lalu Prasad and former Bihar chief minister, will lead the party in his absence, its national general secretary Ramkripal Yadav said on Sunday.

The decision to anoint her was taken at a crucial meeting of RJD MPs, MLAs, MLCs and senior party functionaries at Rabri Devi’s residence here during the day.

‘Prasad is our leader and will remain so in future...In his absence Rabri will guide us as she had done in the past,’ Yadav told reporters after emerging from the meeting.

Prasad is in a Ranchi jail after being convicted in a fodder scam case by a CBI court which handed him five years’ imprisonment.

Expressing faith in the higher judiciary, Yadav, a trusted lieutenant of the couple, said, ‘Prasad will come out unscathed (when he moves the high court) and will lead us once again in future.’
