Caste politics and Indian Secularism

In india politics is all about caste and subcaste and religion and minority. No politician is secular and Wiki has a separate page on Indian sham secularism.

While reading this article on the Murder of the Ranvir Sena Chief , I was glancing through the comments and felt amazed …It went like this

We all know that the man being discussed is a master of caste politics and jod tod niti, once an invincible force from bihar, now an aging man scared that the chara ghotala will finally catch up with him.

Indian polity is maturing, they have to an extent rejected castist politics for development in Bihar, in UP the picture to me is more confusing as to whether  it was the populist MBA Akhilesh who got the vote or was it thef MU vote bank of his father  Mulayam that brought him to power.

Are an increasing number of  Indian people to rise above religion, mullahs diktats, cast and sub caste while choosing their leader? Or do we have to go a long way for that?
