"We (Grand Alliance) are one and united and there is no difference. But we will not deviate".

Meanwhile, Lalu's residence was decked with fresh flowers.

But as railway minister, he (Lalu) got it sanctioned by the then Planning Commission after getting the detailed project report prepared. "But the people sitting in the Union government forgot to invite even me at the inaugural run of a train on the very rail bridge for which I had got the DPR prepared".

When the function was held, I was the chief minister of this state. "Today is the foundation day of the Bihar Rajya Pul Nirman Nigam that constructed the approach road to the bridge".
