health and education facilities etc. Bihar in comparison to other Hindi-speaking states is better off But if we pose this development with respect to people’s aspirations – magnified by propagation of democracy aspiration for better life and well-being – we find it falls short Thus we may infer that the module of development that addresses the infrastructural base at a point of time without sustaining a continuous process creates dissatisfaction among people It becomes evident with empirical regional observations and informal discussions with people in some villages of the state The people acknowledge that the different development efforts made by the government reflected their aspirations of growth and development in different facets of life While they admit that the Buxar region has shown remarkable improvement in basic infrastructural base life – defined by electrified roads and villages smooth running metalled roads etc – they still live in the perception of being in poverty and expect the State to be the deliverer It is important to mention that poverty here does not imply the material construct of poverty but the perceived construct Nayan from Buxar states that though the Nitish government made concerted efforts to develop the state the sting of poverty remains and seems to be growing This conceptual understanding of poverty is determined by the process of ever-changing comparative frames that impacts people’s minds especially that of the subaltern class that is socially and economically marginalised Interestingly this state of influenced perception has motivated even the middle class people to term themselves as ‘poor’ Thus the rift between the rich and the poor has aggravated and the dependence of the classes on the State has gone up The experience of development in Bihar is full of problems which fit into a pattern First there’s the experience of growth; second; there’s is desire for more; and third sense of frustration and resentment against the State for its failure to meet aspirations Where does caste fit into in this construct It gets a bit complex here Whenever there is discussion on elections in the rural hamlets or urban suburbs the pertinent issue is ‘caste’ and not development Which party would perform better Who has a better hold in public view Who will vote whom All these questions are described and decided from the perspective of ‘caste’ This despite the fact that people accept that the Nitish government has made concrete development efforts that has inculcated among general mass a sense of self-confidence and put a check on major scams Despite his image as a development-oriented and progressive person Nitish Kumar and his party JD(U) stand on the support of some Mahadalit caste categories some Koris Kurmis and other middle order caste groups apart from the support of some general caste groups The Yadav-Muslim equation determines the strong political base of Lalu Yadav While a major chunk of the population of Bihar believes that the Lalu regime had been a major impediment in the development of Bihar he still commands good loyalty among his caste and beyond it Though people at large believe Nitish Kumar is the person who can lead the state to development his victory is going to be determined by his alliance with Lalu who banks on caste Caste politics runs in atypical manner The general caste groups vote in favour of the BJP while the vote of the higher castes among the general category like the Brahmins gets bifurcated between the BJP and the Congress The reservation controversy which arose from Mohan Bhagwat’s statement for reviewing reservation sharply polarised this election on backward forward line Two phases of polling have already passed Political analysts find this election a ‘caste plus election’ in which caste goes with development aspiration and Bihari swabhiman The ‘Bihari and Bahari’ slogan is also popular in public discussions in villages quasbas and chai pattis The Jitan Ram Manjhi factor is being discussed in this elections He may get five percent of the Mahadalit votes especially of the Mushsahars Amongst the 19 Mahadalit groups of Bihar the Mushashars have emerged as a major political caste category This caste has in the recent past been rampantly politicised This caste has been targeted widely by the Nitish-Lalu government in the name of improving social justice Many of their MLAs panchayat pradhans and social leaders hail from this caste But this caste support alone cannot ensure Manjhi’s success in the Vidhan Sabha elections Therefore Manjhi faces the challenge to evolve people’s confidence from the Mahadalit community to form his ‘fundamental political base’ and eventually work to incorporate public confidence from other middle order caste groups or high castes Thus he will have to work to evolve a “winning social and caste equation It is paradoxical yet interesting to see that development-centered democracy and so called democratic decision still seems to be guided and influenced by ‘caste power’ Fundamentally development is a double-edged sword On one side it tries to fulfill people’s aspirations while on the other it creates demand for new aspirations In such situation ‘caste sentiments’ try to remove the imbalance in development aspirations This process is ever true for all parties and all electives In the contemporary elections in Bihar it is eminently visible Badri Narayan is a Professor at Jawaharlal University Delhi Rao said the Land Pooling Scheme (LPS), per acre annuity for crop loss will be paid at Rs 30," Pandey said on Wednesday. we have withdrawn case against Hardik and activists of Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) which were registered in Rajkot district, "We do not believe in taking advantage of a crisis inside another party."
