Bihar getting better scenic than Goa: Nitish

PTI, PATNA | 25 November 2012 00:18 IST

With setting up of 35 km of roads daily, "better than scenic Goa", Bihar is making faster strides on the path of development, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said on Saturday.

"The Bihar model of development is fast catching up the imagination of other states and also by foreign countries," Kumar said at a function after release of annual report card 2012.

"Ministers, officials and top industrial bodies are praising the Bihar model of development...with politicians and people of Pakistan, US and other countries evincing interest to learn from Bihar model of development reflect that the state is on the move," Kumar said sharing his excitement with those gathered.

The report card having details of progress in different departments during the year is part of the commitment made by the Chief Minister when he had assumed power for the first time in November 24, 2005.

The report released by the Chief Minister on Saturday in presence of Deputy Chief Minister SK Modi and the entire Cabinet was seventh. Stating that Bihar, earlier rated as a "laggard state", is fast moving on the path of development, Kumar said significant steps have been taken in all the sectors.

With his NDA coalition government completing second year in the second term, the Chief Minister said special emphasis was being given to agriculture for which an ambitious five year roadmap has been prepared and strengthening core infrastructure like road, power and drinking water.

With the state recently rocked by certain incidents, including protestors torching a few police stations in Madhubani over denial of a beheaded body to the family of a school boy, death of four persons in a firing by anti-socials in Araria and agitating contract teachers violently protesting during the Chief Minister's Adhikar rally, Kumar said, the law and order situation was in control.

It is heartening to know that the state of Bihar which was being referred to as 'Bimar' is improving thanks to Eng. Nitish Kumar.

Best of luck to the good CM, his state and all Biharis.

Where there is will, they is a way. Good politicians can work wonders.

Kudos to CM of Bihar Nitish Kumar. He is a visionary leader and shrude politician. Lallu Prasad Yadav, ex CM and later his wife Rabadi Devi made Bihar State Butt of Joke.

Once a laggard state, Mr. Kumar has salvaged Bihar from the brink of destruction. He has led it on the path of glorious development. He has touched the right pulse of Biharis. Today, Bihar is considered fastest growing state. Lot of Biharis who used to migrate to other metropolis have started getting suitable employment in their home state itself. Our other political leaders across the country need to learn from this.

Luckily, we have Mr.Parrikar in Goa, who too is a visionary and hard working. He is trying his best to take Goa forward. He need to focus more on tourism and service related industries in Goa in general and IT in particular. We have such a large pool of well educated english speaking IT professionals, who have migrated to Bangalore, Pune, Mumbai, Chennai for employment. They could return to Goa. If multinational corporates are provided with proper infrastructure in Goa to set up their establishments, then, there will be several companies coming forward to relocate to Goa. Instead of depending on mining, TOURISM and IT could provide appropriate revenue for the state.

india can be a great nation only if bihar and uttar pradesh improve. By whatever means and because of whatever reason if bihar improves the social problem of bihari migration which the state of goa is facing today is welcome. As chairman mao said, it does not matter whather the cat is black or white, what does matter is whether it can catch the mouse.
