Patna: RJD supremo Lalu Prasad on Saturday
described the three-day Global Bihar Summit 2012 on changing
Bihar as "nothing but an exercise in futility and waste of
"The Global Bihar Summit 2012 is nothing but sheer waste
of the public money... it is nothing but an exercise in
futility," Prasad told reporters here.
He alleged that Nitish Kumar government had in 2007
hosted a similar summit on "Resurgent Bihar", but nothing came
off out of it.
"Not not a single investor came to Bihar," he said.
He said the summit 2012 was nothing "but an image
make-over exercise" by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
"I want to know from the Nitish Kumar government to
explain as to what for the summit has been organised," Prasad
said while castigating Nitish Kumar`s oft-repeated
clarifications that the summit was not "investors meet and no
no MOU is proposed to be signed."
"In fact, the ground reality is that poverty continues,
farmers are in bad shape and law and order has deteriorated,"
"Who is responsible for the sheer waste of the public
money being spent on holding the summit," he asked.
Chief Minister owed an explanation to the people for
"this type of exercise which will not prove handy for
investment point of view," he said.
