  1. Perhaps CM Raghubar Das should have had a much better Report Card to present to voters. Jharkhand is a resource rich state where an honest, effective administration can endear itself to people, the way CM Naveen Patnaik, in a comparable state, has.

  2. Let us put it this way : Sharad Pawar is not Deve Gowda. It is wonderful for his family – now reunited – and party to be part of the state government as important inter generational changes take place.

There are senior, seasoned practitioners of governance who would bring weight to the Cabinet. The stakes are too high for all three constituents for them to drop the ball.
