Bihar: PM Narendra Modi kickstarted his campaign for Bihar assembly elections with a strong development pitch in Bihar.

biharModi, in this development pitch has promised the audience that he will be soon unveiling a package worth over Rs 50,000 crore for Bihar, which has traditionally been a backward state in terms of development indicators. . “Bihar’s development has suffered due to politics. I realize that to meet my hopes for Bihar, that amount isn’t enough. So I won’t announce anything today,” Modi said.

He also made a mention of the fact that Bihar will receiving Rs 3.75 lakh crore this year as a result of the government’s decision to give higher share of funds to states as compared with the previous model where the central government used to decide ways to spend on development schemes and states had little say on money spent on such projects. “We are in favour of giving states as much help as we can,” he said. Earlier, Bihar received 2.5 lakh crore.

Making yet another promise, Modi said that he will ensure that there will be one gas in each household. “We already have the river Ganga. We will now bring an ‘Urja Ganga’ to Bihar. It is an expensive proposition. But once we do it, it will help improve the quality of life, and the economy.”

Earlier Nitish Kumar sought Modi’s assurance that railway projects would be completed. To which Modi replied that such projects which were created when Kumar was the railway minister, will be a priority. “Had Atalji (former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee) been elected again, this project would have been finished much sooner. But now we have come back to complete it,” Modi said.

Modi will step up his campaign later today in Muzzaffarpur, where he is scheduled to address a huge gathering.
