A plump doll, called Laluji, has made its way to toy store shelves in Patna. 

Laluji, a dead ringer for the man dubbed the 'clown prince' of Indian politics, is manufactured by a Mumbai-based company and went on sale in Bihar recently for Rs 144. 

Indian railway minister Lalu Prasad Yadav is beaming after the doll in his likeness has been snapped up from toy stores in Bihar what with elections slated for October-November.
