A political stalwart with an distinguished portfolio to back up his tenure in the field, Nitish Kumar, has served Cheif Minister of Bihar for five terms. He has also served as a minister in the Union Government of India. He also served as MP of Barh for six terms. Nitish Kumar appealed the citizen's displeasure with the previous regime's performance in the state. He stepped into the tumultuous political fray of Bihar and formulated effective plans to cauterize Bihar's flailing economy. In the formative years of his Minister-ship, he appointed more than 100,000 school teachers, ensuring that doctors worked in primary health centers, developed infrastructure, cut female illiteracy by half, turning around a lawless state by cracking down on criminals and doubling the income of the average Bihari.
