Daughter of Lalu P.Yadav,Misha Bharti and Chirag Paswan ,the son of Lok Janshakti Party president Ram Vilas Paswan are contesting election this time from RJD and BJP respectively.
Both are educated,articulate and seem to be well aware of the prevailing political scenario.These two have certainly left very positive image of themselves.
RJD for a change is treading very cautiously this time.None of its action has suggested that it would repeat the same mistake if it regains power in the state.People fear that "Jungle Raj" would return with the RJD.The performance of Akhilesh Yadav government is cited as an example that Political parties like RJD and SP are't able to tackle criminals and corrupt elements because of their petty political compulsions.These young leaders ,hopefully,would herald a new kind of electoral politics which does not hinder the progress and development of state at any cost.
The main complaint of average electorate of Bihar was that RJD and LJP exluded a large section of society from their scheme of things.They have perhaps understood that people are yearning for development and whoever is able to deliver that would get overwhelming support.
Nitish Kumar has decided to commit political suicide that opens the door for the RJD.If Lalu Yadav promises to keep development as the prime focus than he can attract upper caste votes as well.There is sign that Lalu Yadav knows this.Therefore good days are ahead of him.
