‘Fighting to restore Bihar’s dignity’

According special category status to Bihar would lead to development and employment of its people, as a result of which their dignity would be restored in other states, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said on Sunday.

‘I am striving for special status demand so that the people of Bihar cannot be insulted by anybody as has been the case in Maharashtra and some other states,’ he told a public meeting in Madhubani district.

‘I am fighting to restore the dignity of the people by bringing fruits of development at their doorsteps so that they will not have to go outside in search of employment and suffer insult and abuse from anyone in future,’ Kumar said.

The CM said the grant of special category status was imperative for development so as to make the people proud of themselves and their state.

He said the state was lagging behind in terms of per capita income, development deficit and industrial development. The grant of special status will bring private investment in industrial sector and make additional funds available.


Nitish Kumar on Sunday slammed persistent protest by contractual teachers during his public meetings in the districts.

‘I know those who are the forces behind protest and slogan shouting by contractual teachers at my public meetings here and elsewhere, but I won’t name them,’ he said. The CM rebuked the agitating contractual teachers and said that he had embarked on ‘Adhikar Yatra’ to fight for a serious issue like the special status demand. He said it was he who gave jobs to teachers and raised remuneration. He claimed that his detractors have become zealous of achievements of his govt and were indulging in petty politics, but said they would not succeed.
