Ranchi, Oct 24: His conviction and imprisonment have created a sensation across the nation, but for RJD chief Lalu Prasad, life in a jail is not that tough. The former railway minister and Bihar chief minister, who was convicted last month in connection to the fodder scam, has been reportedly spending time in the jail watching television. The authorities are yet to assign him some work inside the jail.

The court had given Prasad rigorous imprisonment which means he has to work in the jail. The authorities at Birsa Minda Jail said no work has been fixed for him so far. They said the decision would be taken once the court gives its ruling on Prasad seeking a bail. The veteran politician could be asked to teach other inmates, said jail sources.

Prasad is staying in a separate cell and he has a separate cook to prepare his food. He is also meeting several people everyday in the jail, including ministers and MLAs.

Meanwhile, a public interest litigation has been filed against Prasad leading a comfortable jail life. In the PIL, it has been said that a VIP prisoner can meet visitors just once in a fortnight but the rule is not being followed in case of Lalu Prasad.
