Madhubani, Nov 22 (UNI) Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today reiterated that the NDA government was committed to ushering in a new era of development and prosperity in the state, saying no government had taken such concrete steps during the last 25 years, as were being initiated under his regime.
Addressing a function organised here in memory of the great poet Vidyapati, Mr Kumar said the steps initiated by his government would help in improving the economy of Bihar and there would also be qualitative change in infrastructural facilities, resulting into creation of a conducive environment for investment in the state.
'' Every effort is being made to provide succour to those affected by the flood fury this year,'' he said adding each affected family would be given Rs 250 in cash and one quintal of grains.
Mr Kumar said the ravaged infrastructures like roads, govt buildings and bridges would be reconstructed as soon as the schemes sent to the Centre in this regard, were given clearance.
''All efforts would be made to develop the Mithilanchal region in the state and the birth place of the great poet Vidyapati would be developed as an attractive tourist spot,'' he assured.
