Lalu, not Mamata, complex-ridden person: Nitish

July 04, 2009 23:17 IST

Reacting to RJD president Lalu Prasad's charge that Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee was a "complex-ridden person",Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today said it was actually the former union minister who is suffering from "phobias".

"It is not Mamata, but Lalu Prasad who is a complex-ridden person and suffers from phobias," Kumar said reacting to Lalu's comment on the Railway Minister after she announced to bring out a white paper on the present financial status of the Railways while presenting the budget yesterday.

"It is unbecoming of a former railway minister to interrupt the railway minister while she was in the midst of her budget speech," Kumar told reporters here.

"Banerjee was not one to brook interruptions, not even from Lalu and attacked him quite sharply for the interruptions," he said.

The white paper would "expose the so-called management guru Lalu's claims of huge profits" made by "fudging figures", he said.
