State BJP President Wides Rift

State BJP President Wides Rift
October 4, 2012

BJP state president Dr C.P. Thakur on Thursday said Bihar would continue to be on the development path even if it did not get the special status.

“If Bihar gets the special status, it is well and good. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t matter. The state will continue to develop,” he said.

On Nitish Kumar’s efforts to convince the Centre to accord Bihar the special status tag, Thakur said: “It is the chief minister’s job and he is doing the right thing. But my contention is that even if Bihar does not get it, the state will continue to develop the way it is developing now. There is a need to utilise the central funds properly.”


Thakur had recently created political ripples by saying the BJP was ready to contest all 40 Lok Sabha seats in Bihar on its own. His newest comment drew sharp reactions from the JD(U) that has been lobbying for the special status tag with Nitish spearheading the movement.
