Lalu launched a veiled attack on Gadkari for targeting him and SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav over the issue of CBI probe against them.
"A leader of a political party holding the top post had made derogatory remarks against me and Mulayam Singh. He, however, apologised later," he said, referring to the statement made by the BJP leader in public rally in Chandigarh earlier accusing Mulayam and Prasad of betraying the opposition on the cut motions on the budget in Parliament as they had CBI cases against them.
"Kis CBI se hamko dar hai (which CBI are we afraid of)? .... Such statements are not only demeaning but are aimed to demoralise.
"How can we be afraid of the CBI? ... We know how to deal with such behaviour. We take decisions on our own and do not depend on anyone else," Prasad added
