Lalu puts Nitish in a bind

Bihar

Bihar CM Nitish Kumar seems to be set into a path of closing all pending cases against his ‘elder brother’ Lalu Prasad. Hard on the heels of closing one poll-related case against the RJD chief and his two sons who are now ministers, he has been constrained to close another.

On Wednesday, a district court in Patna closed the case against Prasad relating to an FIR registered against him during last Lok Sabha elections.

Apparently Kumar has no option but to appease his elder brother or take the matter for arbitration to a new socialist headquarters at 10 Janpath.
