    Laloo and Mr. Nitish have ensured that in-spite of talent and excillence Bihar shall remain backward state for another century.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Who country is suffering from this reservation system. No one wants government services due to its mediocre or sub standard quality of service. Reason, wrong people at the job due to reservation. What a shame.

            in 21st century politicians like nitish n laaloo are interested in caste based n not merit based employments... how shameless regressive divisive n biased politics they r playing... who gives them the rights that they can strip off employment from common man? does general quota has no voice in politics?
