We then talked about what his book ‘Broken Promises’ meant and why Bihar was living a nightmare for 15 years. We also discussed how Lalu led Bihar to its downfall and all the scams he did, including the 900 crores ‘Chara Ghotala’. He shared the Rohini Acharya story and how she became a doctor and the ‘Gautam and Shilpi murder story’. We talked about the Bahubalis in Bihar, and what led to the downfall of Lalu Prasad Yadav.
