I am not a beggar: Laloo

Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal described Laloo's demands as "sensitive to government formation." He, however, did not elaborate.

Laloo, who left for Patna in a huff on Thursday evening after his demand for home ministry was reportedly rejected by the Congress, met Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar at the latter's residence in New Delhi this morning.

The NCP has since made it clear that it is ready to be a part of the government and has left the choice of portfolios to the prime minister-designate Manmohan Singh.

Laloo later also met senior Congress leaders Arjun Singh, R K Dhawan and Kapil Sibal.
