This refers to the article `Is it really the end of the Lalu chapter?' (Business Line, March 9). Those who know Mr Lalu Prasad have no doubt that there is no substitute for him in Bihar. His is a temporary set back, perhaps for over trusting his ally, the Congress. President's rule means apparent rule by the UPA where Mr Lalu is a considerable force.

He may not be that happy to vacate the Chief Minister's bungalow with his large family, but he knows that the people of Bihar will give him back his popularity. So, this is definitely not `the end of the Lalu chapter in Bihar'.
