Injecting some humour in the Lok Sabha debate on the trust vote, Rashtriya Janata Dal leader and Union Railways Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav took a dig at the Left parties, saying they were in a 'state of depression'.
Lalu said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [Images] had the courage to bring a trust vote and chided the Opposition for not daring to bring a no-confidence motion against the government.
