Nitish seeks help from Bihari diaspora for state”s industrial growth

Patna, Jan 17 (PTI) Bihari entrepreneurs settled
abroad may rest assured of a hassle-free experience if they
choose to set up a venture in their home state, Chief Minister
Nitish Kumar has said.

Kumar made an averment to this effect late on Saturday
while taking part in a webinar organized by BJANA (Bihar-
Jharkhand Association of North America), as part of which he
interacted with US-based delegates with roots in the state.

He underscored the fact that despite impressive
progress registered in health, education and infrastructure,
Bihar lagged behind when it came to industries.

“You are like members of our family. If you choose to
set up an industry here, you will be provided with all
necessary assistance from our government. We will facilitate
availability of land. We will also ensure that all issues
flagged by you are promptly resolved,” he said.

The chief minister sought to highlight the changes in
society which have been caused by initiatives such as free
bicycles to school-going girls.

“When we took over in 2005, a girl riding bicycle in
Patna was a rare sight. Now hordes of school-going girls can
be seen on the streets of virtually every village. The
enrolment of female students has gone up and last year they
outnumbered boys in the matric examinations,” Kumar said.

He also spoke about his ambitious ”Jal Jeevan
Hariyali” drive aimed at combating climate change, recalling
that it was appreciated by no less a luminary than Bill Gates
when he visited Bihar two years ago.

“He (Gates) came and saw our efforts and, at a media
interaction outside the state, expressed his profuse
admiration. He was amazed by the zeal shown by a poor state in
addressing issues which, normally, only the developed world
appears to be concerned with,” he said.

The chief minister also told the delegates about
efforts made by his government in giving a facelift to various
tourist spots, especially those associated with the Buddha.

“Please do plan a tour. We will be delighted to host
you. You will return with memories to cherish,” he added.

Kumar also said that he valued the interaction with
members of the diaspora, since they brought with them a wealth
of experience.

“I am instructing officials attached to the CM
Secretariat to hold such sessions regularly. I would like to
listen to your suggestions even when it might not be possible
(for me) to take active part,” he said at the interaction
which lasted over an hour.

The CM was accompanied by former cabinet colleague and
key aide Sanjay Kumar Jha. Among others who took part in the
interaction was Chief Secretary Deepak Kumar. PTI NAC
