Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) is preparing for battle; all hands and legs must be fit for the front. Nobody’s taken this call to duty more seriously than Kaushal Yadav, the legislator for Nawada. He is priming his pins for the extra legwork. Here’s how. Step 1: An “exhausted” Yadav lies down on the carpet at Gandhi Maidan, Patna (where CM Kumar addresses hundreds of party workers and exhorts them to ensure 200-plus seats for the NDA in the assembly polls later this year). Step 2: Yadav’s supporters massage his legs (in full public view, in front of cameras). Step 3: Maalish, maalish, maalish…masseurs a must at rallies.
