Mounting a scathing attack on Lalu Prasad for indulging in "rowdism", Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today said while the fire in his house (RJD) has been due to "short-circuit" Prasad was blaming outsiders.

"Fire in the house has been due to short-circuit but he is blaming outsiders for this and indulging in rowdism, pelting stones at house of Speaker," Kumar told reporters while reacting strongly on the incident of stone pelting at the house of Speaker Uday Narayan Choudhary yesterday when Prasad led a procession of his party with nine rebel MLAs.

Kumar hinted that lawful action would be taken against people indulging in pelting stones at Speaker's house during the protest march.

"Everything has come in video footage and action of every individual has been recorded in camera...action will be initiated for breaking law," the CM said at Patna airport on his return from Delhi this evening.

Without naming his bete noire Kumar said "he is forgetting that he is out on bail in a case and indulging in such rowdy act which may land him in further trouble."

Kumar backed the Speaker on his decision at the letter given to him by 13 RJD MLAs.

"He has taken a rightful action which is very much in accordance with Parliamentary democracy," the CM said.

"A letter came to him bearing signature of 13 MLAs and he gave an interim order. Now more letters have come to him...he will take a lawful final decision studying them," he said.

Kumar reiterated that if anybody knocked on the doors of JD(U) after leaving some party, his party would definitely welcome them.
