Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav
— who had once upon a time made it to the Delhi Daredevils
team in the Indian Premier League although he never played a full-fledged game — found himself at the receiving end of a bouncer from senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Sushil Kumar Modi.
Modi used a cricket analogy to express his desire that the Rashtriya Janata Dal accede to the demand of ally Janata Dal-United for a point-wise reply to allegations against Yadav’s father and RJD
chief Lalu Prasad and his family. “The ball is in the RJD
court and let’s see whether Tejashwi gets a hit-wicket or a six,” Modi said. Yadav, whose name figures in the FIR filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation in the land-for-hotel case, was seen enjoying a game of cricket with his nephews earlier in the day.
