Refusing to be drawn into any controversy over SC's majority judgement indicting Bihar Governor Buta Singh, RJD president and Railway Minister Lalu Prasad on Tuesday said the ruling should be acceptable to all.

"The apex court's judgement should be acceptable to all and I don't want to make any further comment on it," Lalu told reporters when approached for his reaction to the Supreme Court ruling.

The Supreme Court on Tuesdayindicted Buta Singhfor misleading the union cabinet into recommending the dissolution of the 13th assembly.

On persistent queries by media persons on whether the Supreme Court was right in holding the Governor's decision as malafide, he said, "It must have found something wrong (with Buta's report on dissolution)."

Asked whether he thought Buta Singh should step down after his indictment by the court, Lalu, who was accused by the NDA of having pressured the union cabinet into recommending the dissolution to the president, said "We should leave it to the conscience of the governor. How can I say whether he should remain or go?"
