For long, Shakti Yadav has been a strong loyalist of Lalu Prasad Yadav. He gained the proximity to the RJD chief by doing odd jobs, playing the errand boy or troubleshooter with unflinching loyalty. Finally, in this election, they have come centrestage. This prominent face at the RJD chief's 10 Circular Road residence for long has now been given ticket to contest election this time. Shakti Yadav has got the RJD ticket from Hilsa seat in Nalanda. JD(U)'s sitting MLA Usha Sinha was denied renomination from Hilsa seat in Nalanda district to enable Lalu's aide Shakti Singh Yadav contest the election. Shakti Yadav will face Deepika Devi of LJP in a tough contest at Hilsa.
