Laloo Yadav will quit, but only after a lot of violence takes place

I would like to begin this column by recalling certain predictions.

On April 15, I had, in context with the formation of the government at the centre, said: "When and how will the deadlock be resolved? The dates can be given on basis of the horoscopes of some top leaders, all of which are not available. Yet the possible dates are April 15 or 28 or May 6 or 8."

Then, on April 25, I had said: "Taking into account the time at which Gujral was elected leader of the UF and the time when he took his oath as prime minister, three jolts are visible. Again, I have drawn inferences."

The first jolt is the additional news of the case against Laloo Prasad Yadav. This happened on April 27/28, under the aegis of Mars. According to my calculations, Bihar faces a combination for war, in which the police strike (which began on April 28) and Yadav's fodder scam are the main factors.

I was amused when the Jansatta reported that Yadav had sacrificed goats because he wanted to become the prime minister. A decade ago, a similar act by former Bihar chief minister Jagannath Mishra had raised a storm in the legislative assembly.

Will Laloo quit? He definitely will, but only after a lot of violence takes place. This is what I mean when I say that a war-like situation will prevail in Bihar.
