A high drama erupted at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) over RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav’s discharge from the hospital.
Despite getting a clean chit from the hospital that he is “fit to travel”, Lalu Prasad has claimed BJP conspiracy behind the clean chit on his health.
AIIMS in its statement had said that Lalu's condition has improved significantly and as per advise of the medical board constituted for his treatment, he is being referred back to Ranchi Medical College.
In the letter to the AIIMS Director, Lalu Yadav said that he should not be discharged from the hospital until the time he is fully cured of all the ailments.
The Bihar leader protested his discharge from AIIMS alleging it is a conspiracy to deteriorate his health. He will be taken to the Jharkhand jail. Before that, he wrote a letter to AIIMS Director questioning his early discharge. "Why am I being discharged when I have not completely recovered? This is being done under some political pressure. If something happens to me, AIIMS would be responsible for it."
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.

Lalu Prasad was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences on March 29 where a medical team comprising six doctors from the departments of surgery, cardiology, nephrology, and neurology is overseeing him.
Lalu Prasad was earlier treated at the Rajendra Institute of Medical Science (RIMS) in Ranchi.
He was admitted to RIMS on March 17 following complaints of uneasiness while he was lodged at the Birsa Munda Jail where he is serving a jail term since December 23, 2017, in connection with the fodder scam.
The former 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.
