Bihar CM Nitish makes it mandatory for public servants to declare assets

Patna, Dec 9 (ANI): In an attempt to get rid of corruption, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday made it compulsory for public servants to declare their assets by the end of every year.

"Circulars have been issued to the Grade I to Grade III public servants, making it mandatory for them to declare their assets every year," he said, adding that his cabinet colleagues have also decided to declare their assets.

Nitish Kumar further listing the priorities of his government said he would soon meet the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, to seek the central Government's assistance for 'Mission Develop Bihar'.

"The Prime Minister has congratulated me on the victory and also promised full cooperation and support. There are several issues to which the Centre's support is required and I will rake up the issues during my meeting with the Prime Minister," he added.

Commenting on the nine-day winter session of the two houses of the state legislature, which was adjourned sine die today, Nitish Kumar said the session was short because it was called under constitutional obligations, following formation of a new government.

"We will soon be convening the budget session for presenting full budget for 2011-12 for Bihar. It will be quite a long session," he said. (ANI)
