The article reports that Rabri Devi made a political comeback when she took her oath as member of India's Bihar Legislative Council on May 7, 2012. Her comeback can be credited to her husband, Lalu Yadav, chief of Indian political party Rashtrya Janat Dal (RJD) who nominated her when the party can only send one to the Upper House. Devi is said to be Yadav's best bet, having helped him consolidate his political standing after she succeeded him in 1997 when he had to quit as chief minister.
