Sitting Blues

Suspended BJP MP Kirti Azad has embraced the Congress—the party that had his father Bhagwat Jha Azad as the Bihar CM. But where does it leave the former cricketer? He has been a three-term MP for Darbhanga and if fielded from there in the summer general elections, RJD’s M.A.A. Fatmi, a Laloo Prasad Yadav man, will have to sacrifice his seat (assuming a RJD-Congress alliance). Else, Kirti may be shifted to Madh-ubani—where Congress’s Shakeel Ahmad and RJD’s Abdul B. Siddiqui are strong. Another option is Kirti versus BJP’s Manoj Tiwari in East Delhi. But with an airport and a proposed AIIMS in Darbhanga, would Kirti like to shift seat?
