The ruling NDA headed by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has geared up for a total facelift of Patna in connection with the proposed first ever global conclave on “resurgent Bihar”.
The conclave in the state capital between January 19 and 21 will follow Prabashi Bharatiya Sanmelan scheduled to be held in Delhi in the first week of January.
Mr Ajay Kumar, CEO, Bihar Times, along with the Institute of Human Development, Delhi, is acting as a facilitator to bring prospective investors across the world and the Bihar Government on a common platform in connection with the conclave.
Talking to the media here, Mr Ajay Kumar said the government had planned to go for an aggressive campaign to strongly position Bihar as the most happening state of the country in the years to come.
Deputy Chief Minister and the Chairman of the steering committee for the conclave Sushil Modi claimed that with the growing acknowledgement of the positive changes in Bihar in past one year from different quarters, the state was poised to emerge as a developed state in next 10 year.
Mr Modi informed that about 500 delegates, including those from US, UK, Europe and West Asia, as well as from other parts of the country, were expected to attend the conclave which would deliberate on various parameters of development.
The conclave was also expected to come out with an agenda to guide the government in adopting the right path to bring back Bihar on tracks.
The Chief Minister, however, has already ruled out the possibility of considering any special economic zone (SEZ) for Bihar.
