Why all roads lead to Saran

April 16, 2009
Saran, formerly Chhapra, is one of the most high profile constituencies to go to the polls on April 16, where Laloo Prasad Yadav is facing perhaps the toughest electoral battle in his eventful career.

Voters queue up at the Bisheshwar Seminary School in Chhapra to cast their vote on a hot summer morning. The school is not far from the Rashtriya Janata Dal and Bharatiya Janata Party election offices, which are opposite each other.
