Lo bhai, rasgulla lo

Laloo Prasad Yadav is flabbergasted at the fuss raised by the controversial TV footage that shows him distributing money to poor villagers. " I have been shown giving money by the electronic media," he has said, "and not taking money." The BJP alleges that the money he doled out was essentially bribes for votes, and that it violated the election code of conduct. But Yadav claims, "I just gave them some money to buy sweets."

"Who needs the EGS?" I ask. Just unleash Laloo.
