Patna: Taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's upcoming visit to Bihar, state Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday said he was 'happy' that the former has finally remembered the state after 15 months.
"I am happy that Prime Minister has remembered Bihar after 15 months. This is not an ordinary thing, at least he remembered Bihar," Kumar said.
"Even if he is remembering Bihar now due to the elections, we welcome him," he added.
Prime Minister Modi is likely to visit Bihar on July 25, where he will address public gatherings in Patna and Muzaffarpur.
The Assembly elections for Bihar are scheduled to take place later this year.
