Earlier today, Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and Bharatiya Janata Party's senior leader in Bihar, Sushil Modi, engaged in a bit of Twitter jousting over the state of the Indian railways. It's really hard to describe just how the conversation between the two senior leaders went down.
All we can say that it wasn't so much about infrastructure, carriages or even freight capacity, but our politicians do seem to have a knack of getting cows into everything. Here are the tweets of a truly exceptional conversation in India's political history.
