The call was made to the BJP lawmaker Lallan Yadav.Apparently, a voice of Lalu Yadav says: "We will make you minister. In tomorrow's election of Speaker, you will have to support us.
"When the BJP MLA apparently replies, showing his reluctance: "We are in a party", Lalu Yadav says: "Absent ho jao. Corona ho gaya tha (be absent? Say you got corona)".
The RJD leader appears to add: "If you support us and we have our Speaker, then we can do things for you."
The RJD chief Lalu Yadav is serving a four-year jail term in Jharkhand for corruption. He spent much of his sentence in the hospital over the health problems.
The former CM in recent weeks has been seen at the bungalow allotted to the Director of RIMS hospital in Ranchi.
Earlier this month in the Bihar election the NDA retained power but Lalu Yadav's son Tejashwi Yadav put up a strong fight.
