IN HER FA­THER’S FOOT­STEPS

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Lalu Ya­dav’s el­dest daugh­ter Misa Bharti seems to be dis­play­ing a po­lit­i­cal brain much like her fa­ther. Afew days ago, she came to Delhi to visit party vet­eran Ram Kri­pal Ya­dav. She went to mol­lify “chacha” Ram Kri­pal, who was sulk­ing af­ter Lalu nom­i­nated Misa as the can­di­date from Patal­ipu­tra. She waited for Ram Kri­pal for six hours in the full glare of TV cam­eras while mak­ing an of­fer to sur­ren­der the party ticket in his favour. When the vet­eran leader fell for the bait and pub­licly ac­cepted the of­fer, he was re­buffed by Lalu and Misa sided with her fa­ther. On March 12, Ram Kri­pal fi­nally found shel­ter in the BJP. Misa, mean­while, has started cam­paign­ing for her party.
