Lalu's Plan B (pics): Daughter Misa, wife Rabri to contest LS

Subscribe to Oneindia News

Patna, Feb 26: Lalu Prasad Yadav may have been ousted from the Lok Sabha elections, but he is not broken. His party is thinning down, but he has not lost hopes. Proof? the Raj Bhawan march yesterday with the 6 MLAs who got back to RJD after dissociating from it to join Nitish Kumar's JD(U).

The rally yesterday to the Speaker's house and the chief minister's residence may have been a show of strength for Lalu, but it also revealed a plan B that he is harping on if things really went wrong.

Now, the women of his household will take up the batton from him, reports DNA. His daughter Misa Bharti and wife Rabri Devi are likely to contest the elections from Pataliputra and Chhapra respectively.

It is not mere ego that is at work here, but Lalu has planned it well. Chhapra has always been a strong seat for Lalu and would be an easy stake for Rabri who has been the CM thrice from there.

Pataliputra, which was a JD(U) stronghold till 2009, can now be taken over given the fact that the leader Ranjan Prasad Yadav elected from here is losing his popularity.

And as far as the rebel MLAs are concerned, Lalu can continue to flex his show of strength and unity with them. [Read detailed report]
