Bihar to be a developed state by 2015: CM

SAHARSA: Seeking mandate for another term, chief minister Nitish Kumar on Friday said Bihar will emerge as a developed state by the year 2015 if the people of the state continued to repose their faith in him.

Addressing a public meeting at the stadium here on Friday on the conclusion of his Vishwas Yatra, Nitish admitted that the development of Bihar was just not possible without developing the Kosi region. And that’s why his government had laid greater stress to the construction of mega road bridges over the Kosi river to re-establish the missing social economic and cultural and industrial link between the two parts of Mithila.

Water resources minister Bijendra Prasad Yadav said Nitish had repaid the debt of the Kosi region by initiating a large number of development projects in the area.

The CM released the report card of the district for the last four-and-a-half years and dedicated to the people 216 development schemes already completed by the district administration. Homestead land papers for 3 decimal land were also distributed among 650 Mahadalit families of the district.
