Madhubani: Bihar Chief Minister
Nitish Kumar today said he doesn`t harbour any ambitions of
becoming rich and is happy with the `overwhelming` support of
the people.

"There are people who harbour ambitions of becoming a
rich man. I am extremely happy because I feel I enjoy an
overwhelming people`s support," Kumar said while addressing an
election meeting at Parsauni in Madhubani district.

Stating that the wind of development has paced up in the
state, he said that everyone is talking about Bihar`s pattern
of development.

"Once the state which was drowned in fear and terror, we
are happy to tell at this stage that we have established the
rule of law," he said adding over 50,000 criminals has been
convicted ever since the NDA came to power in November 2005.

"We have done extensive works for the empowerment of
women, upliftment of extremely backwards, mahadalits and also
for the welfare of minority weavers," he said.

Reacting to his arch rival and RJD supremo Lalu Prasad`s
statement that the LJP-RJD combine would arrange distribution
of motorcycles for school-going children if they come to power
and his "Ghoonghroo" remarks, Kumar said "politics is not the
field for entertainment".

He said that without developing the `Mithilanchal`
regions, the state will not achieve its desired objectives of
development and similarly, the country will not develop in the
absence of Bihar`s development.

Kumar said he was seeking vote for development alone and
nothing more is required for him.

"Give me another chance to accomplish the unfinished task
of development before us," he appealed.
