A Pact for Good Gov­er­nance

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

Apro­pos ‘In the End, Bi­har’s Bet­ter Off ’ by Swami­nathan S An­kle­saria Ai­yar (Aug 2), the ‘sec­u­lar’ camp wanted to lever­age on Ni­tish Kumar’s im­age of a clean and prin­ci­pled leader to pit him against Naren­dra Modi in the 2019 elec­tions, but no party stood by the Bi­har CM in his tus­sle with Lalu Ya­dav on the issue of cor­rup­tion. A dis­il­lu­sioned Ni­tish was forth­right to tell them that sec­u­lar­ism can­not be used as a cover for cor­rup­tion. BJP-Ni­tish’s sec­ond in­ning in Bi­har marks the start of an era of de­vel­op­ment and good gov­er­nance.
