Faced with uncertainty over formation of its government in Bihar, the RJD on Monday admitted that it had committed "mistakes" in ticket distribution and said these errors would be rectified if elections were held again.

"There had been mistakes in ticket distribution but if elections are held again, we will rectify those mistakes and come back" (to power), RJD leader and Rural Development Minister Raghuvansh Prasad Singh told reporters on the sidelines of a conference to launch a programme for skill development of rural poor.

"The people will teach all the parties a lesson and LJP headed by Ram Vilas Paswan will be defeated," he claimed.

Asked whether the poll outcome and possible imposition of President's rule in Bihar would have an impact at the Centre, he said "I am not in agreement with those who say that state politics would have its influence at the Centre. It is a coalition government at the Centre and the UPA Government is running smoothly."

Singh was confident that if elections are held again, Paswan will be defeated. "Paswan ka nashwan ho jayega (Paswan will be finished," he quipped.
