Lalu Yadav discharged from AIIMS-Delhi, to be shifted to Ranchi hospital

RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav was on Monday discharged from Delhi's AIIMS despite a strong objection from the former Bihar Chief Minister. 

Lalu alleged a conspiracy as he was released from the hospital.

"This is unjust, it is a conspiracy to deteriorate Lalu Yadav's health. I am being shifted to a place where there are no facilities. It is a tough time, but I will face it," the RJD chief said. 

He will be shifted to Ranchi hospital. 

Earlier, he had written a letter to AIIMs director saying the hospital is not properly equipped to treat his ailments.

AIIMS in a statement said that Lalu was being referred back to Ranchi Medical College as his condition had improved significantly.

"Lalu Prasad Yadav was referred to AIIMS for management of his acute medical condition. He has improved significantly and is being referred back to Ranchi Medical College for management of his chronic issues," it said. 

Lalu, who is serving a jail term in connection with the fodder scam, was admitted to AIIMS last month for treatment of various ailments related to heart and kidney. He was referred to AIIMS by the Rajendra Institute of Medical Science (RIMS) in Ranchi.

The RJD chief had been admitted to RIMS in Ranchi on March 17 over complaints of uneasiness while he was lodged at the Birsa Munda Jail in Ranchi. 

Lalu has been serving a jail term since December 23. 

Lalu's son and former Bihar deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav, who had met his father in the hospital last week, said the decision has been taken in haste.

"The decision to shift Laluji from AIIMS to Ranchi Hospital has been taken in haste. AIIMS is much better and I wonder why this decision has been taken. Only AIIMS authorities can reveal the reason behind the sudden transfer of Laluji," he said. 

The former Bihar Chief Minister 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.
