India Today - - UPFRONT -

Just a few days be­fore the ghar wa­pasi of Bi­har chief min­is­ter Ni­tish Ku­mar on July 26, Jhark­hand chief min­is­ter Raghubar Das had said his Bi­har coun­ter­part was as pow­er­less as for­mer prime min­is­ter Man­mo­han Singh be­cause real power lay with Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Ya­dav. He had also pub­licly mocked Ni­tish’s booze ban; the Jhark­hand gov­ern­ment was, in fact, all set to run liquor shops from Au­gust 1. In a quick change of heart, Raghubar seems to have em­braced both Ni­tish and pro­hi­bi­tion. At a BJP meet­ing at Giridih, he lauded Ni­tish’s home­com­ing. U-turns, clearly, are the flavour of the sea­son.
