Stung by comments of certain Congress leaders, RJD chief Lalu Prasad on Monday protested at the Cabinet meeting, saying he felt humiliated by the "derogatory" remarks.
The outgoing Railway Minister said he had made his displeasure known to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh as also Congress President Sonia Gandhi but maintained that RJD would continue "unconditional support" to the UPA.
"I have lodged protest in the Cabinet meeting today. I told the Prime Minister that small-time Congress leaders are making derogatory remarks and this is not good for the health of the government," Prasad told reporters later.
He did not name the Congress leaders by whose comments he had been hurt.
During the Cabinet meeting, Prasad said certain Congress leaders had been humiliating him and leaders of some other allies during television debates, according to one of the ministers present.
Prasad sought to know the reasons for the "humiliation" by Congress leaders but the Prime Minister preferred not not to join issues.
