Patna: The CPI on Wednesday held as "very
unsatisfactory" Bihar Government`s performance, but backed
its demand for a special package to tide over the economic
backwardness of the state.
"The NDA Government`s performance has been very
unsatisfactory despite tall claims by Chief Minister Nitish
Kumar, but at the same time, the demand for a special package
is fully justified in view of prevailing economic backwardness
in the state," CPI General Secretary A B Bardhan told
The law and order situation had deteriorated in Bihar
and lakhs of people were migrating elsewhere for jobs due to
lack of employment opportunities in their home state, he
The NDA Government had also failed to set up
industries in the state and carry out land reforms, he said.
