BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha  has alleged that “inhuman treatment” was meted out to Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo and former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad during and after his hospitalisation at the AIIMS in New Delhi.

Sending an ailing Prasad from Delhi in a train that took 14 hours to reach Ranchi earlier this week was in bad taste and smacked of vindictive politics, Sinha said in a series of tweets.

“The inhuman treatment given to popular mass leader & Ex CM Lalu Yadav during & after his hospitalization in Delhi was saddening, in bad taste & not appreciated by one and all. After all he has been our old friend & colleague & has been in state & national politics for very long (sic),” the actor-turned-politician said.

Prasad, who is serving sentence in a number of fodder scam cases, was discharged from the AIIMS on Monday after a medical board of the hospital said he could safely undergo treatment at the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) in Ranchi.

The RJD chief was admitted at the AIIMS for over a month.

Using the word “sir” to address Prime Minister Narendra Modi, without naming him, Sinha asked, “Sir, could Mr. Lalu Yadav not have been at least sent back on a flight instead of being forced to make a 14 hr train journey, with his ailing health condition, against his will & wish…on purely humanitarian grounds (sic)?”

“This is an era of vindictive politics….but Lalu Yadav deserved better treatment at AIIMS or wherever he wishes to be treated instead of being pushed out against his wish…since he does suffer from many diseases whose treatment facility is not available everywhere (sic),” Sinha, who had met Prasad at the RIMS before he was shifted to the AIIMS, tweeted.

 

The Patna Sahib MP has been critical of his own party and the Modi government for quite some time.
