Patna, Nov 20 (UNI) RJD supremo and Railway Minister Lalu Prasad today admitted publicly that imposition of Presidents Rule in Bihar was his ''blunder''.
Addressing a state-level meeting of the cooperatives here, Mr Prasad said he had made a lot of mistakes in his political career, but imposition of President's Rule in Bihar was his biggest ''blunder''.
After the President's Rule, his party lost nearly 100 seats by a margin of about 500 to 1000 votes in the last Assembly elections in Bihar.
Mr Prasad, however, said his own people too were responsible for the defeat as several RJD activists had thrown their hats in electoral battlefield which had created confusion among the voters.
He said Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's claim of diminishing the party in the coming Lok Sabha elections was only ''tall claim''.
''My party would throw Nitish Kumar and his JD(U) over the boundary wall in the elections.'' Reacting to the statement of Mr Kumar descibing Mr Prasad a ''fuse'' bulb, the RJD chief said the people themselves would be able to differentiate between Nitish and Lalu and know who was a ''fuse'' bulb.
