Has Ni­tish got it Wrong, Again?

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page - ASHOK GOSWAMI

This refers to ‘Ni­tish’s Gam­bit is Based on Arith­metic’ (ET, May 21). Ni­tish cashed in on Lalu’s mis­gov­er­nance and paid for his mis­cal­cu­la­tions. A move to check Modi and project him­self as the mes­siah of Mus­lims did him in. Now his gam­ble on Dal­its is the prover­bial last straw. The only log­i­cal in­fer­ence he could have drawn from the sit­u­a­tion was that the days of caste-based pol­i­tics are over and people now eval­u­ate gov­er­nance in terms of growth and de­vel­op­ment.
