Rahul Gandhi New Delhi, May 8 (ANI): An angry Railway Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav is expected to skip today’s cabinet meeting in the capital in the wake of Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi suggesting a possible political arrangement with Lalu’s rival in Bihar — Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

The otherwise media-friendly and gregarious Lalu shunned the media on Thursday even as polling was held for three Bihar Lok Sabha seats, including Pataliputra, which he is contesting.

A sombre-looking Lalu turned up alongside wife and former Bihar chief minister Rabri Devi, son Tej Pratap and a daughter at the polling station on the Veterinary College campus where scores from the media were waiting for him since early morning.

Lalu pushed aside some reporters and cameramen of tv news channels.

A cameraman, who had managed to sneak into the room where the electronic voting machine was placed, was given a dressing-down by an angry RJD supremo. The man rushed out sheepishly. (ANI)
