Rashtriya Janata Dal patriarch Lalu Prasad has termed Rahul Gandhi's adamancy to quit his post as Congress president as "suicidal".
According to a report published in English paper The Telegraph, Lalu Prasad said Rahul Gandhi's decision to quit as Congress chief will not only ring the death knell for his party but all forces who are fighting against the Sangh Parivar. He said it would also be akin to falling into the BJP's trap.
Lalu Prasad said that if the Congress makes a non-Gandhi the party president, they will be accused of being a "puppet" of the Gandhi family. "Why should Rahul give such an opportunity to his political detractors?" said Lalu Prasad.
