Bill Gates lauds Nitish for development in Bihar
Patna: Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates has
lauded Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for ushering in
development in Bihar and assured him of financial assistance
"I had felt that development was taking place in Bihar
and particularly so in the health sector," Gates said in a
handwritten letter to Kumar.
The Microsoft chairman, whose Bill and Melinda Gates
Foundation has provided donation to the state government for
polio immunization and vaccination in the past, said more
lives could be saved in the wake of arrival of new vaccines.
"Our foundation will continue to make donations to the
state in the health sector," Gates said and hoped that
he would visit the state again.
Gates had visited Bihar in May last year.
