Analysis of the JDU-BJP rule - Bihar Assembly Elections 2010

Political parties are all geared up for the Bihar Assembly Election 2010 which will decide the fate of the ruling JDU-BJP headed by Nitish Kumar who has been credited with bringing a 'positive difference' in Bihar. Let us see in this article an analysis of the JDU-BJP rule in the context with Bihar Assembly Election 2010.

The state of Bihar is all prepared for the Bihar Assembly election 2010 which will see people voting in six phases in October-November 2010.

The present government headed by chief minister Nitish Kumar has completed 5 years and now the time has come for the people to analyse the performance and choose a government which they feel has the zeal and honest intentions to fulfil their aspirations.

People in Bihar have long been yearning for development as the state which is largely dependent on agriculture for its economy has always been ignored by the political class and as a result rampant corruption, high rate of illiteracy , poverty and high crime rate has almost incapacitated the masses.

And, once again we the people of Bihar have a choice to mould our future. So, analyse carefully and decide.

Analysis of policies framed by present Government of Bihar

The Nitish Kumar government which took charge of the state in November 2005 took some bold decisions and tried much more than the predecessor in curbing crime, school dropout by girls and developing infrastructure. Compared to the Lalu-Rabri regime, when lawlessness ruled every nook and cranny of the state, law and order has improved considerably. Roads are in a much better shape today. About 6,800 kilometres of roads, over 1,500 flyovers and an almost equal number of cesspools have been constructed. After a hiatus, the realty sector is witnessing a boom, with many more malls and housing complexes coming up. Even has seen an upturn.

The Bihar chief minister can also bank on ladies because he has openly supported the women's reservation bill. The move may not have gone down well with the OBCs, who may perceive it as an attempt by the Nitish government to ditch their cause. Nitish can easily be considered as the original ladies man, who started the empowerment drive by becoming the first chief minister to reserve 50% seats for women in panchayat election. In Bihar, where women generally toe men line in politics, it's a big gamble.

He has become the third Indian after Manmohan singh and Rajshree Birla to get the Polio Eradication Champion Award.

Bihar has registered a robust 11%GDP growth second only to Gujarat inspite of the floods that devastated many areas. Even the automobile sales went up by 45% when the whole country saw a dip in sales due to recession. Though Bihar has seen an increase in amount of funds allocated to it yet this time it was better utilized than during the RJD which just seemed unfazed. Girls cycling their way to school was not a sight in Bihar till Nitish took over. He ensured that every girl who goes beyond class 9 is given a cycle so that she can continue her education smoothly.

But there are few areas where work has still to be done. 73%of the total area is flood prone which needs to be seriously worked upon. Health, power and education is still lagging behind.

But, on the whole the 15 disastrous years of misrule by the RJD is still fresh in the minds of the people. They have surely found a lot of positive difference in these 5 years and this difference is going to be the deciding factor in these elections though Congress which is on revival mood under Rahul Gandhi too will play a deciding role.
