THE STREET FIGHTER
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.
