The former Chief Minister of Bihar , Lalu Prasad Yadav performed a two-hour-long ‘tantra’ puja at the Pagla Baba Ashram near Mirzapur in Uttar Pradesh. Current CM , Nitish Kumar , was smelling conspiracy in Mid-Day Meal tragedy which killed 23 kids due to contaminated food at school. Any connections ? :D Interestingly,this tantra puja has been performed after the Supreme Court agreed to transfer the multi-crore fodder scam case to another judge, offering a greater relief to Lalu Yadav , as he is the prime accused in the scam.
