RANCHI: Gautam Sagar Rana, the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) President in Jharkhand, on Monday expressed unhappiness over a ban on meeting party chief Lalu Prasad at a hospital here.

The Birsa Munda Central Jail had issued the order on April 20 citing law and order concerns.

Every Saturday, three people were allowed to visit the former Bihar Chief Minister at a paying ward in the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) here where he is warded.

"It's unfortunate that the jail administration has taken such a decision. This has been done at the instruction of the state government," Rana told the media here, adding that he hopes the ban will be lifted by Saturday.
