By re-electing Lalu and Nitish, the people of Bihar have blown it bigtime. They have totally messed up, just like the Delhiites who elected Kejriwal. Just as those smug Delhiites were soon treated to garbage in the streets and Dengue fever, likewise Biharis will soon find themselves back in the lap of Jungle Raj. There's no way that a Lalu govt will be anything but corrupt, and Nitish has yoked himself to that wagon. If anything, I see that alignment splitting due to internal contradictions, but the time lost to such a circus will only put their state behind once again.
It's time for the nation to leave Bihar behind and in the dust, where it belongs - and where its people want to be.
A future partition of Bihar may be worth considering, in order to rescue the progressive section of the electorate from the regressive section. That way they can each pursue their own trajectories separately.
PS: It's really strange that after each electoral loss, BJP makes the same ritual statements about analyzing the results to learn lessons, but yet they are never able to come up with any plan to get themselves better representation in the media. I'm not sure how many losses they'll have to take before they wake up in regards to this bread-and-butter basic issue.
