Patna: Reacting sharply to RJD supremo Lalu Prasad's 'dengu remark', Congress on Friday hit back calling Prasad 'a swine flu virus which has turned the state sick.'

"Lalu is a swine flu virus and the impact of its spread is world-known... he has made the state sick," state Congress media cell chief Prem Chandra Mishra reacted.

Mishra also took a dig at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's remark that the Congress and RJD have a secret understanding.

Kumar had sought to know from the grand old party that how could a leader with four MPS occupy a front seat in Lok Sabha."Seat allocation is done by the Speaker and our party has no role in it", Mishra said, adding Kumar should better put the question to the speaker.

To a question, Mishra said the party was now busy finalising its campaign plans and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was likely to undertake a day-long electioneering for each of the six-phase polls.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi and General Secretary Rahul Gandhi would be addressing public meetings in different parts of the state on or after October 11.

Chief Ministers of Delhi, Rajasthan and Maharashtra, besides several Union ministers are also likely to campaign in the state, he claimed.

The party would engage Bollywood actors Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta, besides other film stars for campaigning, Mishra said.
