Buxar: Despite an assault on his motorcade by angry villagers in Buxar district that left more than half-a-dozen policemen and security officials injured, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday, during his ongoing 'Vikash Sameeksha Yatra', launched 168 social and developmental schemes to the tune of Rs. 272 crore.

Kumar, speaking at the Bihar Military Police (BMP) ground in Dumraon on Friday, said that he would let his accomplishments and ground realities speak for themselves and not listen to those who are constantly trying to criticize him for not doing enough in the state.

"My job is not to run the government from the state capital. Instead, I prefer finding out the truth about progress being made in Bihar by personally visiting these districts where developmental works are being carried out. I want to see the condition of roads, power situation, drinking water facilities in each village. Those who are trying to mislead the people of Bihar to derail my mission would be disappointed if they looked at the ground realities," he said.

Kumar then moved on to the topics of prohibition, and dowry and child marriage saying that while prohibition in Bihar has been proved to be very successful; he would not rest until he is successful in eradicating dowry and child marriage in the state.

"When it comes to prohibition, I am not going to make any compromise. Our women had asked me to declare Bihar a dry state so I am not going to go back on my words. Meanwhile, we are committed to wipe off the system of dowry and child marriage from the state and once again there will not be any compromise on these issues," he said.

The Chief Minister urged all to make his January 21 human chain against dowry and child marriage successful.

Agriculture Minister Prem Kumar, Transport Minister Santosh Nirala, and a number of Janata Dal – U leaders also spoke on the occasion.
