24 April 2010

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has turned to blogging to showcase the achievements of his government.

Aware of the power and reach of the internet, Nitish seems keen to use the medium to his advantage as the state goes to the polls in a few months.

He has created his own blog (www.nitishspeaks.blogspot.com) to get connected to the people of the state, including those living outside Bihar.

Here is a preview of  Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar Blog : "Nitish Speaks"

Nitish posted his maiden article on Thursday on the success of his pet project, Mukhyamantri Balika Cycle Yojna, launched three years ago.

He wrote that the scheme had brought about a real transformation in the field of girls' education and had been fairly successful in arresting the dropout rate in schools.

"Our government spent Rs 174.36 crore in the past three years to make 8.71 lakh schoolgirls proud owners of bicycles which they are using to educate themselves," he wrote.

He insisted that this was not mere statistics: "In Bihar, bicycles have now become a veritable instrument for social change." In an apparent bid to reach out to all sections, Nitish said the scheme did not exclude anybody on the basis of caste, creed or economic background.

"A remarkable aspect of this project is that this has benefited students from all sections of society," he wrote.

Nitish also revealed how he overruled bureaucrats to give money directly to schoolgirls for buying bicycles, instead of floating tenders for bulk purchase.

"I thought that purchase of bicycles through tenders might give rise to corruption in future. Instead, I was in favour of handing over money through cheques directly to the beneficiaries... (to) not only simplify the entire process but also make the scheme transparent." Nitish has found the blog an effective medium in the election year to send out the message about how his government has pursued a policy of all-inclusive growth in the past four-and-a-half years.

"This will be an ideal platform for the chief minister to directly interact with people on the web," BJP MLC and Nitish's close associate Sanjay Jha, who is looking after his blog, said.

Nitish's blog has already evinced interest from netizens.

Though it was launched without any fanfare, it had more than 250 visitors within hours.

"Given the initial response, I am sure it will be a big hit," Jha said. "We have plans to make it bilingual, in both English and Hindi." Nitish seems to have borrowed the idea of blogging from his bête noire Lalu Prasad. The former railway minister had also started his blog which ended up becoming a grievance cell of sorts for train passengers.

Dear Sir,
Myself Ruesh Ranajan i am an graduate in textiles from DKTES, Ichalkaranji (Maharashtra). Hailing from Bidupur village (Bihar).Here I want to drive your attention towards the ample oppurtiunities of textile that can be enhanced in our state which can generate a lot of job oppurtunities in the state. Sir I think we are a major producer of bamboo and bannana in our nation . This two material can be used on large scale for fibre production rest sir there no any unit for bamboo fibre production in india, so a large market can be focused on. The technology neede for the same is largely available with us but just we need a support from the state. Your Regime has helped in industrial growth in the state , so i am keeping a hope from you
Hope you will consider this letter

Hello Nitish jee,
Sir thank you for all your work you have done for Bihar. We , the people of Bihar believe in you and want you to come back as our next Chief minister of Bihar.

Sir, in the next tenure we would like to see some more eng and medical colleges getting open in our state.

As far as industry is concern We have everything natural resources , Humen resources and now the supporting goverment however we are back behind in number of industries.

Patna would become another IT HUB if we focus on IT industy over here.

Since metros and IT- cities has become very expensive. IT and BPO sector in india is looking out for 2nd 3rd tire city.

Another sector we can focus is Food proccessing industry.

And i believe you don't need any suggestion from people to do all these things. I am sure you must had already discussed all these points with your ministers .

Again, Thank you very much for all the good work .

Namaskar Mukhyamantri Mahoday, I would like to know what you have done for the people of so called forward class. The people of that class too have their pangs, some of them ,too, languish under poverty line. However, some leaders are overlooking their problems and harbouring biased attitude.Is your govt. going to offer any special pacakage to the have nots of the so called forward class?

Sir,Tommorrow a file is being sent to you by forest department with a proposal to post a few officers on the post of DFO -ARRAH,SAHARSA,GAYA,ARRARIA,AURANGABAD,BETTIA,etc.For preparing the proposal and its approval by the forest department altogether 15lakh rupees has been delt with by the minister forest.It is a great slur on your minstry that on one hand you are talking about fair and honest dealing and on the other hand your ministers are so corrupt.On perusal of the file you can yourself observe all the things.Hence may I expect that you will personally inquire and stall this file.This is very much expected from an honest and fare person like you.-NAVIN JHA,ADVOCATE PATNA HIGH COURT.

Adarniya Nitish Sir, Namaskar,
I am gautam, from patna town and presently residing at Mumbai, working in central excise. I take this opportunity to thanks for your all sincere efforts taken during your tenure for betterment of bihar, However, it is very clear that a lot of work has to be done, perhaps more than that has been done during last five years. On the front of technical education,increasing responsiveness of officers towards public grievance, plugging the leakages in welfare schemes viz MNAREGA etc. are major cause of concern. In bihar, still Ek Anar, Sao Bimar situation prevails. Your and yours collegues efforts is now showing the wind of change. I wish you all success in forthcoming assembly elections. We want to see you as C.M. Part-II.
Good wishes and regards,

I am wondering why the Voters turnout is always around 40- 55%. There can be many reason and the stte government should look into this irregularity of the election commission.

Reasons -
People have to stand too long in the queue to cast their vote.

People fear that if there is fight between rival parties then they will unnecessarily get hurt and loose life / limb . Chances of this to occur is very high as the wait time outside the polling both increases.

3. Even if 100% of eligible population stand in queue, and no body leaves before voting, then also every one cannot vote because the polling booth closed.

Are there enough polling booth and EVM to complete 100% polling in during voting time.

Another question is, if some one did not get a chance to vote on the day of voting, can they still submit their vote on another day .

Government of Bihar should appoint an Industrial Engineer to do discrete simulation of the voting process(using queueing theory) and see if there is any possibility of bungling by the EC of India.

Polling Officers may knowlingly take more time in checking the ID card of the voter and thereby may slow down the voting process and make people go away from the booth without voting.

Ideally, there should be enough voting machines and officers that will allow any person to come and cast their vote in less then 20 minutes. This will allow more participation of people and accurate reflection of people's mandate.

Dear Sir,
Many many congratulations to you for your incredible success and winning in Bihar 2010 elections. The wind of development is blowing very fast but, still there are people who don't want to see us happy. You don't worry we are with you. Sir the bureaucrats and government officials are still taking money for doing their work especially the Police officials. I hope this time these problems of common people will be considered and taken seriously.
It will be my great pleasure if you give few minutes from your busy schedule and visit my native village- Sathwar, Po- Bitthi, PS-Goreyakothi, Dist-Siwan, Bihar, M-09039151548.
Sir please answer to those who still say and think that the CM is far away from us let them realize that this CM is within the reach of common man and available to them in their need.
Waiting for your auspicious presence between 25th Dec. 2010 to 3rd Jan. 2011. As i'll be there at this time.
