Patna, Feb 26 (UNI) JD(U) Parliamentary Board Chairman Sharad Yadav today said that the Nitish Kumar government in Bihar would fulfil all its promises on which it had sought the mandate during the last assembly elections.
After inaugurating the 117th birth anniversary of Swami Sahjnand Saraswati, Mr Yadav said the people had dethroned those who kept on misleading them by making tall promises during the past 15 years.
He said the NDA government under the leadership of Mr Kumar was striving for the well being of the people specially for the farmers, whom he described as the 'back bone' of the states economy.
The government had initiated steps to provide basic facilities in the villages which were being connected with pucca roads.
He said the government was also dealing with the law and order problems effectively and appealed to the people to provide related inputs and strengthen the intelligence network of the state.
He appealed to those in power to work honestly for welfare of the farmers as 70 per cent of the states population was engaged in cultivation work.
He stressed on the need for improving facilities for the farmers saying that it would be a tribute to a great socialist like Sahjanandji if the life of the farmers prospered.
Mr Yadav outlined the achievements of the NDA government during the brief period of three months and stated that the government was committed to providing justice to the riot victims of Bhagalpur for whom it had initiated several steps.
JD(U) Parliamntry Board leader Prabhunath Singh dubbed Shajananad as a great thinker who believed in working for the farmers. He discussed the constraints faced by the farmers who were ignored by all successive governments since independence.
He suggested several measures for prosperity of farmers under which he asked the state government to provide fertilizers, good quality diesel at cheaper rate and proper irrigation facilities.
The function organised under the banner of All India Swami Sahjanand Saraswati foundation was presided over by the former MP Arun Kumar. The foundation proposed for setting up a national level agriculture reasearch institute in Patna in the name of Sahjanand.
Apart from providing Swami Sahjanand Saraswati scholarship to the meritorious students belonging to the poor section, it also proposed to include the thoughts and philosophies of Sahajanand in the curriculum of schools and colleges. The foundations proposal for installation of a statue of Sahjanandji in Patna was accepted by the state Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
