Commenting on the RJD leader Lalu Prasad’s conviction in the fodder scam, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said one should not be greedy even for a single day. “I heard Laluji has been sent to jail, he has been convicted by a CBI court. I tell everybody, don’t be greedy even for a day, because that may ruin your tomorrow.”
Addressing an extended general council meeting of the Trinamool Congress, she said: "If we are satisfied with a diet of rice and fish, or rice and lentils, and by wearing ordinary clothes, we will live happily and peacefully.
