"Lalu is suffering from frustration now.... he is making frivolous statements for his political existence," Rudy told reporters. Recalling that Prasad was always surrounded by MPs and others when he used to enter the Central Hall in Parliament as Railway Minister, Rudy said "now the same Prasad doesn't find anyone moving around him and he has to look for those who were supporting him earlier in Central Hall."
"Lalu's position has deteriorated after the crushing defeat the RJD had to face at the hands of NDA during the 2009 Lok Sabha and 2010 assembly polls in Bihar," he said. "What Lalu Ji speaks today is virtually a struggle for his political existence," he said, adding even the sample survey conducted by the team of India Against Corruption on Lokpal, "90 per cent of people opposed the RJD leader in his Saran constituency."
Prasad had recently suggested Hazare to float a political party to contest elections. On the attack by MNS activists on North Indians in Mumbai recently, Rudy said "it is a matter of great concern." The Maharashtra government must take steps to provide adequate security to them, he demanded.
