News18 Daybreak: The Mysterious Bihar Politics

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.

He may have been arrested once, but he's not bending down. A cartoonist from Tamil Nadu who was arrested for his ‘objectionable’ work has said that he "didn't make any mistake". 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. 

Where Valsad leads, Gujarat follows. This constituency in Gujarat has always served as a guide of the emerging trend in the state. Take a look at the winners over the years from this Bellwether constituency.

An actor has turned into a politician and an YouTube star wants to be a part of Bollywood. Take a guess. Answers are here and here. 

Watch out for:

The verdict on the six year old case, dubbed as one of India’s largest scams, may finally be out. Former telecom minister A Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi are expected to be in court and we are expecting a big news day. Watch out for interviews and analysis from telecom experts. In case you need a quick memory brush on what was the 2G scam all about, here’s what we have for you.

Nearly two-and-a-half years after the alleged rape of a 72-year-old nun at Ranaghat in West Bengal’s Nadia district, the city sessions court will pronounce its verdict today.
