If UPA returns to power it’’s good otherwise there will be some other name, he added.

The RJD and the LJP had earlier left three seats for the Congress in Bihar, but now Prasad declared to contest all 40 seats in the state.

When asked about his choice for the post of Prime Minister, Lalu said he would support Manmohan Singh for the topmost seat.

If I were the Home Minister, I would have sent him to jail, he said. (ANI)
