Observing that her husband's imminent release from a Ranchi jail would enthuse the RJD workers and boost her party's electoral prospects in the general elections, she said the RJD supremo and other senior leaders will launch extensive campaign in Bihar in the months to come.

The former chief minister conceded that the RJD supremo’s conviction in the fodder scam case and his subsequent imprisonment had demoralizing effect on the party and its workers, but differed that the development had weakened the political outfit.

Regarding the RJD's electoral strategy, she said her party will fight the general elections with renewed vigour by working for unity among like-minded secular forces.

RJD leaders and workers in several districts of Bihar took to the streets to celebrate the Supreme Court’s decision and were seen bursting firecrackers and spraying colours on each other.
