Currently a part of the three-party coalition government in Bihar headed by Nitish Kumar, Lalu was the chief minister of Bihar during the 1990s when the fodder scam took place. Feed for cattle between 1990 and 1997 was bought using inflated invoices, sometimes with no fodder being bought at all. According to the CBI, the fodder scam as it came to be known was worth nearly Rs 1,000 crores.
In 2013, Lalu was convicted by a Ranchi court and sentenced to 5 years in jail in one of the three cases filed in the fodder scam, however a higher court later dropped some of the charges claiming that Lalu had already been convicted and could not be tried for the same offense again.
