THE STREET FIGHTER

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Aflight to Patna from Delhi to “ex­pose” Ni­tish Ku­mar’s al­leged at­tempt to cre­ate a rift within his party. A 2-km walk to the gates of the Bi­har Leg­isla­tive As­sem­bly at the head of a protest march. A rick­shaw ride to the Raj Bha­van in Patna. The re­bel­lion in RJD seemed to have brought out the street fighter in Lalu Ya­dav. On Fe­bru­ary 25, by the time the day came to an end, he had rounded up nine of the 13 de­fect­ing MLAs like a vig­i­lant cowherd. And grabbed thou­sands more eye­balls.
