THAT the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has seized land worth Rs. 44.75 crore belonging to former Bihar Chief Minister Mr. Lalu Prasad Yadav does not come as a surprise. But it only confirms the amount of corruption and swindling of public money and properties that these so called high and mighty have indulged in. With unfettered powers as the head of the Government it is hardly surprising that for leaders like Mr. Lalu Prasad Yadav amassing of personal and family wealth remained the singular mission. Thankfully, law has finally caught up with the chief of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and members of his family. Very deservingly Mr. Lalu PrasadYadav is now cooling his heels in jail. But the law is taking too long to catch up with such master swindlers. It is because of this inordinate delay in expediting cases against politicians pending for years that they are able to get elected and occupy seats of power, giving them the chance to manipulate cases they are facing. But luck seems to have deserted Mr. Lalu Prasad as he faces a plethora of cases.
