Patna, April 30 : RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav on Monday said the decision to shift Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad from AIIMS in New Delhi to a Ranchi hospital is part of a conspiracy to kill him.
"Laluji is not well, he is still seriously ill. I met him last week and saw his bad health condition. It is surprising why Laluji has been shifted from AIIMS to a Ranchi hospital. Everyone knows AIIMS is best for treatment for Laluji who is suffering from several serious diseases.
"Depriving him of proper treatment is part of a conspiracy to kill my father," Tejashwi, a former Deputy Chief Minister and younger son of Lalu Prasad, told the media here, adding that there was political pressure on AIIMS to deprive him of proper treatment.
"RJD will go to the people's court to say that Laluji has been denied proper treatment as part of a conspiracy by those in power in Delhi," he said.
Tejashwi also tweeted: "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."
Lalu Prasad was on Monday shifted to a Ranchi hospital for follow-up treatment -- after he met Congress chief Rahul Gandhi at AIIMS where he was undergoing treatment for heart and kidney-related ailments.
