Election Issues of the state
Corruption has been prevalent everywhere in the state. Right from the land allocation to a mere government job, corruption thrives, thanks to the nexus of corrupt bureaucrats and politicians. The declining standards of education, problems of farmers, contentious land acquisition and far-from-satisfactory women empowerment were some of the main issues that became the focus of all the parties during the campaign. Now that the BJP is in power for the first time in the state, that too with clear majority in the house, it is going to be interesting to see as to how the ruling party deals with these problems and adversities that have marred the grassroots development of the state.
