Just one parameter is not enough. Have you been to Kalahandi region is odisa which is hot belt for poverty and naxalism. Similarly Bengal is falling behind rest of India pretty fast while Uttarpradesh is beaming with expressways these days. All these things add up. My own experience of Madhya Pradesh I have seen phenomenal growth in infrastructure even in rural areas. India is changing fast.
Best thing I have seen is the cleanliness of railway stations in Bihar, one of the cleanest in India despite being the “poorest state” in India. It’s roads are above average and it is fun in early morning Biking, my friend took me to a bike trip to Rajgir, absolutely fabulous experience, he told electricity is 24/7 and internet is excellent in Bihar villages. Just some Special Economic Zones can stimulate much higher growth and can improve the lifestyles of people.

Railways had it complete turnover of Image since 2014. The cleanliness has increased by leaps and bounds.
Ya it could be that Bihar is doing better than other states but in generals Railway stations have improved a lot in last 6-7 years.

Odisha,WB are better than UP and Bihar in almost every parameter, be it health, be it education, be it access to clean drinking water,be it doctors/hospital beds per capita or any other social parameters.

Buddy ,In the so called "BEST STATE OF INDIA " bodies are piling up due to lack of even the most basic medical care and you are here bragging about "beaming with expressways"...What a shame!

When i was battling COVID,the last thing that i had to worry about was Oxygen supply ,medicine and access to healthcare...a rare luxury for the people of the hindi belt.

Okkk I got it , bhalo bangala people here .

Look at number of covid cases , up supplies worker to most of country , and as cases rise in respective state they run back home and spread covid , Bengal has high underreported cases .

And give some facts to back your claim , we don't take socialist orgasm currently

LOL! This has to be a joke....

Standards of Living in Odisha and Bengal are far far better than UP,BIHAR,MP,ASSAM,CHATTISGARH.
MP and Assam have improved a lot on indicators. Odisha sucks anyway as far as living standards concerned (may not be "far far" even against Bihar).
Bengal is better than these all in east India despite de-industrialising since CPI rule.

You seem terrible outdated in your understanding of development of contemporary India. Your contempt for hindi belt is reeking of far deeper malice then you let on. Anyway to the deliberately ignorant there is no cure .

Bihar has tested more than 2.5X and UP is nearly 4X with popn of Bihar 1.1X, UP 2X compared to WB. Even in TPR these two states are much better than WB i.e. both UP and Bihar is below 10%.

If You compare UP , Bihar Odisha and Bengal on Parameters like Infant Mortality rate , Maternal Mortality Rate and Average Life Expectancy
Infant mortality rate
West Bengal 25 deaths per 1000 live births
Bihar 38 deaths per 1000 live births
Uttar Pradesh 43
Odisha 44

Now, Average Life expectancy
West Bengal 70.2
Bihar 68.1
Odisha 65.8
Uttar Pradesh 64.1

This data is a little Old available on the website of Niti Ayog believe it or not But Bihar is about to overtake West Bengal in 5-6 years there is no doubt West Bengal is better than these states but won’t always remain better because Bihar and UP are improving at a much faster pace than Bengal or Odisha
