Patna: All 30 ministers in Bihar on Friday
submitted the details of their assets to Chief Minister Nitish
Kumar, after he asked his cabinet colleagues to place records
of their properties.
"We have submitted the details of our assets to Chief
Minister," Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi said.

Modi said the details of these assets would be posted
on the state government`s websites for public.

In a bid to weed out corruption, Kumar had asked his
ministerial colleagues earlier this month to submit the
details of assets that they possess by today so that the
records can be put on the websites for public.
Circulars were issued to officials, including IAS and
IPS cadre, besides other public servants from Grade I to Grade
III ranks to declare their assets, official sources said.

The details of assets owned by Chief Minister would
also be placed on the government`s websites.
