6 member European Union Delegation visited Bihar

6 European union members have shown some interest in Bihar by visiting Bihar and learning about the Bihar growth story and the social and economic trends at the ADRI (Asian Development Research Institute). I am happy that other countries are taking interest in Bihar. I hope this translates into some growth opportunity for Bihar.

The list of six people are
  1. Joao Cravinho - Ambassador of the European Union and this was his 2nd visit in less than 3 months.
  2. Piere Vaesen - Ambassador, Embassy of Belgium
  3. Jorge Roza de Oliveira - Ambassador, Embassy of Portugal
  4. Janos Terenyi - Ambassador, Embassy of Hungary
  5. Darja Bavdaz Kuret, Ambassador, Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia
  6. Anne Marchal -First counsellor, head of section, political affairs

38% increase in automobile sales over last year (Indication of a good foundation)

With major development news from Bihar has almost stopped coming, there was one piece of news that brought some good feeling. The news was that the automobile sales in Patna was about 38% more than last year. This reflects a growing set of people with money to spend on automobiles (including 2 wheelers) but more importantly people feeling secure enough to spend money on cars without fears of someone snatching it from them.

At least the foundation built by Nitish and the NDA team is strong. I hope Nitish can refocus on development and Bihar's growth as he did during his first tenure as the CM. What is required is more focus, more focus and focus only on Bihar's growth and development.

What is happening to our CM, Mr. Nitish Kumar?

I sit here day in and day out reading about Bihar and all the news from Bihar. However, from the past many months, I really don't see any substantial development news coming out of Bihar. Forget substantial, I don't even see much news at all of any kind of development. I want to write about the developments but there is nothing to write about... No Industries, no resolution/reduction of the Maoist problem, no agricultural evolution, no speeding of power projects, etc , nothing which will make me sit-up ,watch and write.

What has happened to Mr. Chief Minister. In his efforts to consolidate his position in the political scenario in Bihar, he seems to have lost his way and drifted away from the very path that made him successful... Development and Bihar's Growth. With all the political maneuvering that is going on, Nitish Kumar is not able to focus on any development at all.

It is only development that will keep Nitish at the helm... All news of developments have stopped coming from the last 2 years... There is still time for Nitish to realize that his existence and success were only due to the focus on development that he had. Only focusing on Development is something which is going to come to his aid in future. If he wants to remain in power and continue to develop Bihar (which everyone had come to expect of him,) then Nitish has to again leave the other activities aside and focus on development. He has to put all his energy towards development over the next few months and beyond. Only then will he continue to have the support of the people of Bihar.

Nitish Kumar ji - It is time to rethink. Please focus back on development. Leave the other distractions and focus on Bihar's growth.
