Be Ready to Face More 'Short-Circuits': Nitish Tells Lalu

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today described the rebellion in RJD camp as "fire in Lalu Prasad's house due to short circuit," and asked him to be prepared to face more such incidents.

"Be prepared to face more such short circuits in your house... Better check your wire," Kumar said while talking to reporters here.

On February 24, 13 RJD MLAs announced to have quit the party but nine of them later claimed they were not part of the breakaway faction.

It was actually a fire within his (Lalu's) own house for which he was wrongly blaming outsiders, Kumar said.

Asked if he was acting as a "transformer", Kumar said "In this case there was no problem in transformer but it was due to short circuit. But it is true that transformer can cause short circuits in many houses."

On the RJD chief accusing Kumar of poaching his party leaders, he said changing sides by leaders was 'normal' during election time and advised Prasad to take it in a "sporting spirit" instead of beating chest and pouring scorn on others.

"Many people have left JD(U) to join other parties while some more are preparing for it which I know. Likewise many others wish to join us for which our doors are open," the chief minister said.

Kumar criticised Prasad for indulging in "rowdism" to protest against the Assembly Speaker Uday Narayan Choudhary recognising the 13 MLAs as separate group.

Some RJD supporters accompanying Prasad had hurled stones at the official residence of the Speaker yesterday.

The Speaker is the competent authority to take a decision but it was not wise on part of him or others to play an "advocate" in the matter.

He, however, said it was only an interim order and nothing has been asked to JD(U) so far on the issue.

Nitish should take hiw own advice. JDU is not exactly a united house these days. And besides, whatever one can say about Laloo, the man is no fool. He is extremely streetsmart-something Nitish is not. I wont be surprised if Laloo trumps Nitish before it is all over.
