Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday announced that his government would increase the grants and also give more subsidies to the state Haj Committee.

"The state government is also duty bound to see that the Haj pilgrims are not subjected to any difficulty and harassment," Kumar told a meeting of the committee.

Kumar, however, expressed dissatisfaction over Bihar Haj quota and said the Chairman of the Committee Hajrat Maulana Anisurrehman Kasmi would make efforts to increase it.

The meeting was interrupted when a section of the audience complained that nothing had been done for recruitment of Urdu teachers by the state government.

Police soon intervened and restored order in the meeting.
