Nitish Kumar: Greatest Chief Minister of Bihar

Nitish Kumar,  India's Most successful Chief Minister

Nitish Kumar is a man of few words and more substance. He is not only Bihar's greatest Chief Minister but India's one of the most successful Chief Minister. He has been described by Forbes as a man who has "infused new life into a creaking state".

Personal Life:  Nitish ji, as he is fondly called was born in 1951 from a Freedom Fighter Kaviraj Ram Lakhan Singh and Parmeshwari Devi. He completed his Engineering from Bihar College of Engineering, now National Institute of Technology, Patna(NIT, Patna). After completing his graduation, he married Manju Kumari Sinha in 1973 and the couple has a son, Nishant Kumar. His wife was a teacher who passed away in 2007 while still at job. During his initial years, he struggled financially very hard to make a living. Right from his youth, he was an idealist to the core.

Political Career:  Nitish Kumar is a Socialist. He has been influenced by Jayaprkash Narayan, Ram Manohar Lohia, Karpoori Thakur, S N Sinha and V.P. Singh. He joint JP Movement between 1974 and 1977. He was first elected to the Bihar Legislative Assembly in 1985 as an independent candidate. In 1989, he became the General-Secretary of Janata Dal in Bihar. Nitish Kumar was aligned with Lalu Yadav before he parted ways with him to form his independent party Janta Dal United in 2003. He was also Railway Minister of India and has been credited to bringing a lot of reforms in it.

Rise of Indian state of Bihar under Nitish Kumar : Nitish Kumar sworn as the Chief Minister of Bihar in 2005 thus ending the Jungle Raj of Lalu Yadav which looted the state of Bihar for 15 years. He made some brilliant reforms during his rule. The First change which he brought was to bring an electronic version of Right to Information act called Jankari scheme. He also launched E-Shakti NREGS Program by which rural people can get employment information by telephone.

Nitish Kumar government also initiated bicycle and meal programs – the government gave bicycles to girls who stayed in school – which saw Bihar getting huge number of girls into schools and fall in school drop out rates. Women and extremely backward castes were given 50% reservation in electoral for the first time ever in India. However, bicycle scheme of Nitish Government has been criticised by some people because of corruption involved in the scheme.

Nitish Kumar along with former President APJ Abdul Kalam also started Nalanda International University Project  headed by Prime Minister of India. It is a step taken to renew education in Nalanda University. He did so many good work within first 5 years in Bihar that People of Bihar re-elected him and his Government for a second consecutive time in 2010.

In a nutshell, Nitish Kumar re-infused the feeling of Bihar sub-nationalism among People of Bihar and he caused development by moving beyond the boundaries of caste-system, religion and gender bias. Such was the need of teh hour and he has indeed proved that he is the best choice for heading Bihar.

People of Bihar Team wishes him and his Government all the best in his good work and we hope and believe that Bihar will grow and emerge as one of the greatest places under his guidance.

With Best Wishes,

Aakash Arjuna.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s suggestion to the Airport Authority of India (AAI) that the Patna airport should be shifted to Nalanda, his home district, has evoked strong reactions from business community, air travellers and even political opponents.

Patna airport is shifted to Nalanda, which is nearly 100 km from Patna, it would consume three hours in reaching the airport, which is not justifiable. how u pepole saying him a great leader. i dont think so.

To remain in power, I guess every leader has to do politics as he has to keep all his members of the coalition happy.What matters is the development in the state and whether the life of a common man is affected or not.
Well, his first tenure focused on the road development and conditions of roads have certainly improved, atleast we don't have to wait for the elections as was the case in the yesteryears.
On the education front, a number of scholarships are given to students in reputed institutions.Bihar divas sees many students awarded for bringing laurels to the state.This has definitely motivated students right from the boards level.
Although, the turnout in the schools have seen a sharp rise owing to mid-day meals and cycle, the quality of education imparted there is highly dubious. The hiring of teachers solely on marks basis, wherein most of the teachers graduated during the lalu era of corruption poses a serious question mark. A qualifying examination could very well augment the graduation marks to allow a fair chance to everyone.
Janta durbar too has had a big impact. Anyone now has a right to express his/her grievances directly to the cm, which I guess happens only here and actions are taken against the complains very rapidly.

What is lacking in bihar is investment and luring the IT companies for a start could well pave the way for that.The improving police condition and impression about the state is now moving forward from a lawless state to a stable state. We missed an opportunity to cash in for tata nano factory when singur was doubtful. Its not that we lack the labour but its the opportunistic approach like that of Narendra modi to cash in these scenarios and bring investment to the state.

The Governance of Nitish Kumar is Good from outside but internal politics is very bad like cast politics Dalit kota mahadalit kota what is this this way you can't improve bihar status and Bihari Status
