Bjp will emerge as the single largest party in Bihar. Mamta Banerjee and Navin Patnaik will lead the race in West Bengal and Odisha, respectively. In both the states, the ruling party are expected to score a comprehensive victory.Both Patnaik and Mamata have done good work in their respective states. But Nitish' work has been much better in Bihar. He is officially the best performing Chief Minister in India. He has won awards for the same. So why will Patnaik and Mamata do well, but Nitish get routed?
Patnaik also was allied with the BJP at the state level. Then he broke up the alliance, went solo, and that was hugely beneficial for him. Why will that not be true also for Nitish?
Am I missing something?
Is there an upper caste bias in the Indian media that wishes to punish Nitish for breaking up with the BJP?
If Nitish gets less than 20 MPs, I am going to be surprised. Based on his work he should get more than 25 MPs. If he ends up with five MPs, like some surveys are predicting, I am going to be very surprised.
A 15% growth rate in a poor, landlocked, agricultural state is magical.
