again Assembly election in Bihar is round the corner and all sorts
of political tamashas are on to woo electorates of every segment
of the society.
Of course in a democracy, political parties have every right to
seek voters' mandate for fulfilling their political as well as developmental
agenda. But contrary to the set rules of the game, time and again
elections in Bihar were fought on caste and communal slogans and
development agenda always became casualty. The election in the state
was hardly ever fought on the real concerns of the common people
and consequently most of the political parties hardly have any roadmap
and vision for the development of the state. Politics without vision
will certainly generate a crisis of governance.
For the first time we are exhorting the intelligentsia as well as
common people to come out with their own agenda for the development
of Bihar. Your opinions and concern will definitely make our politicians
accountable to the people's issues. This could be a beginning of
the constructive dialogue between civil society and political class.
Hopefully, our enlightened readers will participate in this exercise
by sending their valuable inputs and some concrete suggestions for
the development of the state. In this way all of you can have your
forceful say in the coming assembly elections.
