After being discharged from the hospital, Lalu Yadav said, “This is unjust, it is a conspiracy to deteriorate my health. I am being shifted to a place where there are no facilities. It is a tough time, but I will face it.”
Prasad was discharged on Saturday, but was allowed to stay in the hospital till Monday since he “requested to be kept in hospital as he wanted to travel on Monday,” it said.Not fit yet, says LaluPrasad has maintained that “he is not well enough to be  sent back to Ranchi.”
“This is unfair; it is a conspiracy to worsen my health.

I am being shifted to a place where there are no facilities. It is a tough time, but I will face it. My health has not really improved,” maintained the leader citing heart, kidney and blood sugar problems.“My back hurts and I feel dizzy… I have fallen in the bathroom several times. My pressure and sugar levels keep shooting up,” he said.
The AIIMS , in a statement released on Monday, said that Prasad, who has been at the AIIMS since March “has improved significantly” and that he is being referred back to the Ranchi Medical College for treatment of his chronic issues. “He is currently stable and is fit to travel,” the hospital said in a statement.

However, a controversy has erupted over Lalu’s discharge certificate with the RJD chief expressing his unhappiness over the AIIMS decision. This move did not go down too well with Lalu or his family, with his son Tejashwi Yadav saying 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,” Tejashwi added.

Lalu also wrote to AIIMS stating that he does not want to be shifted back to Ranchi hospital.’I don’t want to be shifted back to Ranchi hospital, as that hospital is not properly equipped to treat my ailments,’ Lalu wrote.
RJD supporters too staged a protest outside the hospital soon after the statement was released. The hospital has complained to the police about unruly behaviour by the RLD leader’s supporters when he  was being wheeled out. Lalu Yadav’s last visitor at AIIMS in the morning was Congress president Rahul Gandhi, who sat with him for around 30 minutes.
The controversy sparked on a day when Congress president Rahul Gandhi met Lalu Yadav at AIIMS and inquired about his health.
The former Bihar chief minister has been serving prison term in Ranchi’s Birsa Munda Jail since December 23, 2017 in connection with the fodder scam.
He has been convicted in four fodder scam cases since 2013, with the most recent one being the Dumka treasury case, in which a special CBI court sentenced him to 14 years in jail.

Mr Yadav , who was admitted to Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) in Ranchi on March 16 after he complained of discomfort at Birsa Munda Jail, was later moved to the AIIMS.(With Agency Inputs ).
