Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar
on Sunday said he will not be able to visit New York to lecture at
Columbia Business School on April 1 as the dates clash with
the forthcoming budget session of the state legislature.

He was invited by the top B-school to address their
7th India Business Conference themed - `India: an honest
conversation`.

Kumar, however, thanked the institute for the invite.

"It is a matter of pride for the people that their
chief minister has been invited by a reputed US-based
university for giving a lecture there," he told reporters.

The invitation proved that Bihar was being talked
about in the country and the world for which the people
deserves all the credit, Kumar said.
