On February 22, as Tejashwi Yadav finished his 20-minute-long speech at a public meeting in Siwan, a stopover 132 km northwest of Patna, during his Jan Vishwas Yatra across the state, almost everyone in the first few rows, young men all, shouted out a request. The message could have been lost in the din, but the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader caught on what his audience wanted—to speak in the local dialect. And Tejashwi obliged, switching to chaste Bhojpuri to say, ‘Rauaa logan ke aye ke baa’—please come [to Patna for the March 3 rally]. On that day, a mega Opposition show, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is expected to share the stage with RJD president Lalu Prasad and CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury.
