If the grandeur of a huge public rally is the benchmark for a successful launch of a career in politics, Tejaswi, 24, and Tej Pratap, 26, RJD president Lalu Prasad's two sons, could not have it any better than this.
At Prasad's 'Parivartan Rally' in Patna on Wednesday, his biggest political show since the RJD regime headed by Rabri Devi was ousted from office in 2005, the arrival of the two Lalu scions was perhaps the biggest breaking news.
Change was the central theme of the rally.
Pleased at the crowd turnout, Prasad predicted the countdown to the Nitish Kumar regime's ouster from office had begun.
Senior party leaders who spoke at the rally acknowledged another kind of change: that the succession line of RJD leadership had been established without much ado.
