Nitish denies Congress' allegations
Patna, Apr 16 (UNI) Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today denied the Congress' allegation that his government was 'politicising' bureaucracy by asking senior officers to implement the NDAs 'programme for good governance'.
Mr Kumar told newspersons here that the Congress' allegation 'held no water' and said instead it was a reflection of the NDAs seriousness in honouring all pre-poll promises.
'Such type of an act was part of good governance,' he observed.
Meanwhile, Bihar Congress spokesperson Prem Chandra Mishra said a party delegation would meet state governor Gopal Krisna Gandhi to intervene in the matter.
He said the NDA's ''programme for good governance'' documents signed by special secretary to the government Akhileshwar Prasad Giri, were sent to all departmental secretaries and commissioners and also divisional commissioners for proper implementation of the programme. He said election symbols of BJP and JD (U) were also printed on programme documents and hence ''exposing the governments intentions of using officers as agents of the BJP and the JD(U).''
