"My case is only in trial Court and not with CBI or in the High Court," the RJD chief said after arriving in New Delhi.

Yadav said he was in the capital to get justice for unemployed youth, farmers, labourers and entrepreneurs in Bihar.

"Laloo has made prime ministers. We have got thumping majority in Jharkhand and Bihar. We are not for power. We have high regards for Sonia Gandhi. We have given our commitment of support to Congress... But I am not a child and I will take a well-thought-of decision (on joining the Government)", he said.

The RJD strongman added that he was looking for a firm commitment on Bihar package and not a mere assurance.
