Before Akhilesh Yadav's helicopter landed in a clearing in Mahoba, the warm-up acts on stage broke into song. Then, as news arrived that he was about 10 minutes from landing, the big upping began in rhyme. "Mr Laptop, amar raho" - a citation of the Chief Minister's scheme of free computers for students. But the one that really caught on with the crowd: "No confusion, no mistake, jai Akhilesh, jai Akhilesh."
