Finally, finally, the ‘National’ media of India has started to take note of the positives of Bihar and Biharis. Bihar is taking the right steps under Nitish Kumar. Lalu after all is not just a joker, but has produced some results.
But has Bihar really done well, according to Ashish Sharma? Well not quite. UP has done bad since it has gone ‘even’ below Bihar. Now who has given Sharma to equate Bihar with the worst? Does he quote statistics? Last heard, Bihar was ranked 13th in the development index in a list of 29 states. But does Sharma even pause to think he has no right to equate Bihar with the worst.
Look at the analysis of Anklesaria Aiyar.
Lalu did better than Nehru. Read carefully and the real conclusion comes out. Lalu did better than Nehru in spite of himself, not because of himself. The real hero is the market economy which propels even a Lalu to do better than Nehru.
Not quite praise but backhanded complement.
What does the junta say?
