If Lalu is infact convicted, he faces disqualification and a seven year jail term for the same. Along with him, there are 44 others accused in the case.
Just minutes before the judgement is to be announced, allegations from the Opposition are already making rounds, accusing the UPA government of shielding Lalu Prasad Yadav in the fodder scam.
The verdict is likely to affect the elections in Bihar and at the Centre too.
RJD workers claim a conspiracy against their leader Lalu Prasad Yadav
Yadav's son Tejaswini Yadav earlier spoke to the media persons and claimed that his father was innocent. "The fodder scam is not about the money. They just want to trouble my father," he said.
His party RJD too claimed a conspiracy against the leader.
The scam rocked his tenure as the Bihar Chief Minister, following which he went to jail and his wife Rabri Devi took charge as the CM. Though he made a comeback, the judgement is likely to seal his fate in politics.
