The Chief Minister has asked the Center to make four lanes in Bihar and NH. He was speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the construction of a superstructure in the west lane of the Gandhi Bridge over the Ganges on Friday.
Through video conferencing, he said that the NH-60 two-lane from Mokama to Lakshisarai to Munger should also be made four-lane. Barauni NH-26 should also be made four-lane from Mozaffarpur. Four lanes should be made from Khagaria to Purnia. The Bihar government will complete the construction of the bridge from Sultanganj to Agni Ghat and facilitate traffic on this route. Mutaffarpur should also be converted into four lanes of Sitamarhi-Sonbarsha NH-77.
To increase more funds in small, medium and small scale industries
The Chief Minister said the central government and funds should be increased for small, medium and small scale industries. This will greatly benefit Bihar. Roads and bridges are being constructed at a fast pace. If more work is done in small, medium and small scale industries, Bihar will go further. There are many possibilities here. The state government has changed the industrial policy. The purpose is that no one has to go outside Bihar for compulsory employment.
The population density of the state is more than 1100
He said the state has a population density of more than 1,100, which is much higher than the national average of 300. So it should not be compared with developed states. The growth of the state has doubled in the last ten years. People’s personal income has also increased. However, due to the high population density, we are lagging behind in many parameters. He said that in 2005 the fertility rate of the state has come down to 4.3 which has now come down to 3.2. Special emphasis is being laid on girls’ education for population control.
