Bihar Govt. Considers to Develop Smart Villages for Bihar Citizens
Chief Minister of Bihar Nitish Kumar said on Saturday that the state government of Bihar has launched several programs to make ‘Smart Villages’ in the state so that the people of the village do not need to move to the cities. But the question is that how could a city made ‘smart’ with a “meager” sum of Rs 500 crore.
During a meeting in the fourth phase of his ‘Nishchay yatra’, CM Nitish Kumar said “I do not know how a city could be made smart at a meager sum of Rs 500 crore over a period of five years. Anyways this is a Central government scheme.”
He said that his government’s main target is to create smart villages by implementing “seven resolves” during the remaining four years of its term. Under ‘seven resolves’, free electricity connection, toilets, drinking water, and sewage connection will be provided to all areas.
CM asked that when all villages of Bihar become smart, who would feel like moving to cities for better civic amenities. CM is taking feedback from the public about the launching or prohibition of ”Seven Resolves”.
With the participation of ministerial colleagues Bijendra Prasad Yadav, Chandrasekhar and state police chief P K Thakur, the Chief Minster highlighted the measures his government has initiated with a special focus on youths and women by way of “seven resolves”.
