Nagpur: The politics of caste and religion
has come to an end in Bihar where JD-U and BJP combine has retained power with a massive majority, BJP President Nitin
Gadkari said Thursday.

"Now onwards, only politics of development and progress
will work and this has been proved with the results of Bihar
Assembly elections", Gadkari told reporters here.

"A new beginning of development politics has thus begun,"
he said.

The results of Bihar Assembly elections have also
brought curtains on dynasty rule and charisma, Gadkari said
in an obvious reference to Congress and its General Secretary
Rahul Gandhi.
Congress should realise Rahul Gandhi is no more an asset
for them, he said adding his charisma has not worked there.

On Karnataka political crisis, Gadkari said Chief
Minister B S Yesdurappa has initiated a probe into the land
scam and told party leadership they can take action against
him if found guilty.
Earlier on his arrival from Delhi, Gadkari was accorded a
warm reception for steering party to grand victory in Bihar.
