Patna: Directing police to review the law and order situation of the state at the ground level, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has said people want to see development.
Addressing media here on Monday, Kumar said: “"The people of Bihar want development and, no one can stop them now. The image of Bihar has drastically improved, so locals, as well, as people abroad, are now getting attracted to Bihar."
Kumar also said that the people of Bihar are now pro-development and it is impossible to stop them from moving forward.
He has also instructed the police headquarters to keep a check on the performance of various police stations.
"If there is a judgment, then it is the duty of the state and the police to follow it. It would be checked if the police follows the direction of the bench or not. A lot of cases that come are counseling cases," said Kumar.
He further said that there was a shortage of officials in the police department and recruitments would take place over the next five years.
Kumar also rejected the opposition`s demand for a Central Bureau of Investigation probe into the alleged Bihar Industrial Area Development Authority (BIADA) land scam, stating that there was no need for any kind of enquiry into the case.
Earlier, the state government had rejected the allegations of irregularities in land allotment by BIADA and said that the government was being intentionally dragged into a controversy.
Media reports claim that prime lands of BIADA were allotted to relatives of ministers and senior government officials.
Instead of promoting industrialists from the state and outside, there was promotion of the interest of the sons and daughters of senior ministers, legislators and bureaucrats, who were allotted prime plots of BIADA without advertisement or tender.
