Patna, Nov 17 (UNI) Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today said his stand on RJD supremo and Railway Minister Lalu Prasad's suggestion for en-masse resignation of all MPs, MLAs and MLCs of Bihar on Maharashtra issue, continued to remain the same and refused to reconsider it.

Mr Kumar told mediapersons here that he had already made his stand clear on the issue and there was no question of giving second thought over it.

'' If all MPs, MLAs and MLCs resign as per the advice of Mr Prasad, it would create a condition for imposition of President's Rule in Bihar while demands were being made to take action against the Maharashtra government to ensure safety and security of Biharis living there,'' he added.

Taking a potshot over the claim of Mr Prasad that he had an affection for Mr Kumar and treated him like his younger brother, the Chief Minister said, ''If the wishes of the RJD supremo prevails, he will not hesitate to drag me out from 1 Anne Marg (CM's residence)''.

''In a democracic set-up people's verdict is supreme but Lalu's position is weak on that front'', he further added.

Mr Kumar alleged that condition of Railways had deteriorated during the regime of Mr Prasad as instead of giving attention to improve it, he was engaged in misleading the people on performance of the NDA government in Bihar.

''The claim of Mr Prasad of unprecedented profit earned by the Railways during his regime is nothing but the juggling of figures'', he noted.
