The world of politics is a strange place. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has supported calls for reservation in the private sector in the state. What's odd about this? The stand has been endorsed by his friend-turned-foe Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav. However, the CM's alliance partner BJP haven't taken a call on this yet.

G Bala alias Balakrishnan had drawn a cartoon allegedly depicting the chief minister in a ‘distasteful’ manner days after a man and his wife set themselves and their two children on fire allegedly due to harassment by a money-lender.  "I felt very sad, so I depicted my emotions through that cartoon," he said.
