11.03% - Bihar's GDP growth rate between 2004-05 and 2008-09

The nation today will wake up to the reality that Bihar has been the second fastest growing economy in India in the last 5 years. At 11.03% GDP growth rate, Bihar is only marginally behind Gujarat whose GDP grew by 11.05%. This is surely going to make heads turn across India. Who would have thought that a state which had 5.15% negative GDP growth in 2003-04 and had been consitently declining in all sectors and all aspects, could change so much in so little a time.

This is another proof that good governance and a will to change things can do wonders. Kudos to Mr. Nitish Kumar and his team for doing something which many would have thought impossible or even a miracle to achieve in Bihar.

Everyone has heard the hype associated with the Gujarat growth story over the last few years, but Mr. Nitish Kumar and his team have again slowly and steadily brought about a change and shown the way of progress, which has become a hallmark of Mr. Nitish Kumar. Obviously it would have been more difficult to change a state like Bihar compared to Gujarat which was already prospering.

I am really happy that many people today will sit up and take notice of the change that has come to Bihar and will start appreciating the Bihari people more than they did before.

The detailed news can be found in the Times of India article "Bihar grew by 11.03%, next only to Gujarat"
