Patna: With a US Congress report praising Bihar, the ruling JD(U) on Wednesday said the state was not only being discussed in India but also abroad for its "good governance and rule of law" under Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

"Bihar, which had once gained notoriety for its criminal image, is being discussed as a model not only in India but also abroad for establishing good governance and rule of law," JD(U) spokesperson Sanjay Singh told reporters.

His comments came after the latest report of the Congressional Research Service (CRS) on India lauded Bihar and its Chief Minister for his governance and administrative skills.

The CRS, an independent and bipartisan wing of the US Congress, which prepares periodic reports on issues of interest to the US lawmakers, had mentioned Bihar next to Gujarat in good governance.

Singh said, "Kumar is credited with restoring law and order in the state". He has also being lauded for the anti-graft legislation to stamp out corruption in public life.

"It is also a matter of fact that the politics of caste has been relegated to backseat as evident from the results of the Assembly elections of 2010", he said.
