Arwal: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar
on Wednesday said no single massacre has taken in Arwal district
since the NDA government took over power six years ago.
"I am glad with the prevailing peaceful situation in
Arwal district in which not a single incident of massacre has
taken place during the NDA rule in contrast to frequent
occurrence of such incidents earlier," he told a public
meeting at the Gandhi Maidan before winding up his two-day
seva yatra to the central Bihar district.
Kumar lauded the people of Arwal district for setting
aside their socio-economic prejudices to march on the path of
development and prosperity and said that his government was
committed to provide necessary infrastructure, particularly
irrigation facilities, to the farmers to tap vast
opportunities beckoning them in the farm sector.
"I understand that the farmers of Arwal district require
irrigation facilities to water their parched farmland," he
said, adding that his government was working hard to improve
irrigation infrastructure in the district.
"I meet people to hear their grievances and problems
during tours and try to resolve them by directing the
officials to do the needful," he said.
Kumar said during his ongoing seva yatra to the districts
he plans to visit remote areas where even the officials do not
visit to find out whether the fruits of development and
welfare schemes were reaching the intended beneficiaries.
He inaugurated 49 development projects and laid the
foundation stones for another 62 projects at a combined cost
of Rs. 67.25 crores on the occasion.
