Lalu Yadav’s lucky numbers are 2, 1, 7.

Lalu Yadav, who is currently undergoing medical treatment at Delhi’s AIIMS was granted bail on health grounds. In 2021, Laluji would want to enjoy the show by staying behind and tacitly endorsing Tejashwi Yadav’s vision. But his political- intelligence cannot remain idle in the present context of Bihar politics. The former Chief Minister is a great political mathematician, adroit in politics, what local analysts call, ‘Jor-Ghatao’ (addition and subtraction). He has acquired mastery in politics over how a subject can be converted into an issue of people. Lalu Prasad is still considered as a leader of mass, his words and statements in politics are taken seriously by large sections of people and his political manoeuvring is well known to all his opponents giving sleepless nights to Nitish Kumar’s BJP government,” says celebrated Politics astrologer Hirav Shah.

Happy Birthday, Lalu Prasad Yadav!
Ab Khela Hobe Bihar Mein!
