Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar
on Sunday said the state would attain higher growth rate this
fiscal than last year`s 14.5 per cent which was highest in the
country.

The 14.5 per cent growth rate attained by Bihar in
2010-11 on the price base of the year 2004-05 was the highest
among the states according to the Central Economic and
Statistics Directorate, Kumar said.

"The state will attain even higher growth rate in the
present fiscal as agricultural output is likely to increase
due to good monsoon," he said.

Kumar was speaking at a function here where he
released the Patna journal of medicine dedicated by the Indian
Medical Association (IMA) to the late gynecologist S N
Upadhyaya.
