The UPA-II government has been struck by governance paralysis.

Congress – Sitting pretty

Among the top five major political parties in Bihar, Congress is the only one sitting pretty. While it may still be miles away from forming a government on its own, yet it is assured of gains, from the depths it had fallen to. Present elections will help Congress wipe clean the stigma of having aligned with Lalu for so long. Everyone agrees that the party gambit of going alone in U.P. and Bihar is a longer term investment which would pay dividends eventually. The party is highly enthused by Rahul’s magic that enabled them to do fairly well in the neighboring U.P. state elections. They are hoping for an encore in Bihar too. Congress seems all set to better its performance despite having reorganised its state unit a number of times in the past few years.
