key arguments: One “Until he starts enjoying the fruits of economic growth the poor voter at the bottom of the social pyramid will continue to put his trust only in his caste leader who he thinks will deliver” And two: “We always knew RJD-JD(U) and Congress had arithmetic in their favour Their caste base was known When we tried to mix development with Hindu sentiments we found that castes like Yadavs were looking at their own chance to get power We used certain Hindu idioms to break caste nexus but we failed” A Cabinet Minister who attended Shah’s lunch said: “The defeat shows that we could

“snail’s pace” and in a “partisan manner” the Gauhati High Court has directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to take over the case The case of alleged bribery came to light when one Bhaben Handique lodged an FIR at Dispur police station in 2015 alleging that Louis Berger had paid substantial bribes to some officials to get a Rs 1452-crore contract for setting up water supply plants in Guwahati In August 2015 the state government lodged a similar complaint with Assam Police CID following which the probe began But even as the CID began its probe Handique went to the high court and sought a CBI probe alleging that the case has not been properly investigated by the Assam Police agency The high court in its order issued late Friday evening said that though the probe moved fast during the first four months it lagged after that “It was incumbent upon the state machinery to ensure proper effective and unbiased investigation into the allegations made in the first information report This court totally fails to understand as to why the investigation has been done at such a snail’s pace where prompt and effective action was wholly warranted more so when the allegations involve payment of bribe by the said company to various government officials to the tune of Rs 6 crores approximately to win contract in Guwahati valued at Rs1452 crores” the court order said The court also said the probe so far was conducted in a partisan manner “It is crystal clear that the investigating agency has not investigated the case in right earnest and has been conducting the same
