No grouse over sitting arrangement during Prakash Parv: Lalu
RJD national president Lalu Prasad today said he has no complaint over not being allotted a seat on the dais during a Prakash Parv event here, though a top leader of his party and the Congress party had expressed displeasure over the matter. "Why should I have any grievance? It was a spectacular arrangement for the 350th Prakash Parv celebration that brought good name to Bihar from across the globe," he told reporters here.

Prasad said there are people who would always point out drawbacks and shortcomings in any such mega programme. "People always perform puja by sitting on the floor. Is puja performed by sitting on the chair?... And that was the 'Guru ka darbar'," he said. RJD national vice-president Raghuvansh Prasad Singh and Bihar Congress chief and education minister Ashok Choudhary, both constituents of the grand alliance government in Bihar, had on Friday resented Prasad not being given a seat on the dais alongside Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

Former Union minister Lalu Prasad and his two minister-sons - Tejashwi Prasad Yadav and Tej Pratap Yadav - sat on the floor in the VIP enclosure, with others. Kumar, Union ministers Ravi Shankar Prasad and Ram Vilas Paswan and Governor Ram Nath Kovind shared the dais with the Prime Minister at the concluding function of the 350th Prakash Parv to celebrate the birth anniversary of 10th Guru Govind Singh on January 5.

"This (Lalu Prasad not accommodated on the dais) has not gone down well with the people. Lalu Prasad was made to sit on the ground. Everybody praised Nitish Kumar for making grand arrangements. Was RJD not the part of the management for preparations and arrangements made for the prakash parva celebrations?" Raghuvansh Prasad Singh had said expressing his anger a day after the function.
