PATNA: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad on Wednesday said he would rejoin active politics the day the court acquits him in the multi-crore fodder scam.

"I will join active politics again if acquitted by the court," the former Bihar chief minister and union railway minister told media here.

He said once proved innocent by the court, he would be active not just in the politics of Bihar but the Centre as well.

Last month, he said if he was acquitted like Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa, he could also be a candidate for the posts of chief minister and prime Minister.

Lalu Prasad targeted the BJP by saying: "BJP is nervous as it failed to declare candidate for the chief ministerial post."

Lalu Prasad expressed his softness for external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje."Both are women, they should be forgiven."
