"This is true that I had talked about defeat of two sons of Lalu Prasad in Bihar elections and also said of quitting politics if they did not loose...definitely this claim was 'amaryadit' (undignified)," he said in his facebook account.
   
"I should not have uttered such things for sons of any politician. I am hurt for making undignified claim and express sorry before you all," he said. Pappu Yadav had made the prediction about the defeat of Lalu Prasad's sons, Tej Pratap Yadav and Tejaswi Yadav from Mahua and Raghopur seats respectively.

On being asked whether he would like to go back to Lalu Prasad's party, Pappu said,"Going back to old option is not possible for me." Talking about his future course of action, Pappu Yadav said he would try to enact role of a true opposition to Nitish-Lalu government in Bihar.

"After one month if Nitish Kumar fails to fulfill his poll promises, including his seven determinations including Rs 4 lakh education loan to youth, free wifi in colleges/universities and monthly allowance of Rs 1,000 for eight months to facilitate youth employment, I will go to the
public and launch an agitation," he said.
    
He claimed that BJP, whose state president does not even have the moral courage to accept defeat and tender a resignation, cannot play the role of a responsible opposition in future.
Pappu Yadav, whose party was rated as an influence particularly in the Kosi belt, accepted candidly that he "failed to read the social-political base of Nitish Kumar. The base was much more deeper than we could understand."
    
He, however, refused to accept that the Bihar elections proved that Lalu Prasad was the lone and undisputed leader of numerically strong Yadav caste. "My party got 1.5 percent vote. BJP also received over 16 percent of Yadav votes so how can you call Lalu Prasad as the lone leader of the Yadav caste having around 14 percent vote in the state," the Madhepura MP said.
