Patna, Aug 24 (UNI) Railway Minister Lalu Prasad today created a flutter when he forgot the date of his joining the ministry after the last general elections.

Speaking to newsmen here on his return after conducting an aerial survey of some of the flood ravaged districts of north Bihar, Mr Prasad repeatedly referred to his several achievements as a Railway Minister since he took over the charge ''in June 2005''.

But when the mediapersons drew his attention to the inadvertent mistake and pointed out that in fact he took over the reins of the ministry in May 2004 and not in June 2005, a smiling Mr Prasad in his usual manner admitted that it was not just a slip of tongue but he had actually forgot the date.
