Patna: Road Construction Minister Nand Kishore Yadav, along with Building Construction Minister Maheshwari Hazari and PHED Minister Vinod Narayan Jha inaugurated the 'Engineers' Day' function organized by the Bihar Engineers Service Association (BESA) at the Abhiyanta Bhawan in Patna on Friday.

Speaking on the occasion, Yadav said that a state could develop only if the intentions of the government are honorable.

"If the government is honest about it and its intentions are honorable, only then a state could develop and prosper. Think about it, the public is the same and so are the engineers but as soon as the government of Bihar changed in 2005, the pace of development skyrocketed in the state," the minister said.

"Prior to 2005, there were only four bridges on the Ganges in Bihar. In last 12 years, construction on ten new bridges began two of which have already been inaugurated and have become fully functional. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a short span of three years, has shown the nation with his New India vision what can be accomplished when the intentions are right," Yadav said.

Painting a rosy picture of Bihar under the NDA government, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader said that the government was preparing to build another bridge parallel to the existing Vikramshila Bridge in Bhagalpur and yet another bridge in Buxar that has been cleared by the Center for its speedy construction.

"Moreover, people driving out of Patna would see four-lane highways no matter which direction they go. The road between Mokama and Munger would also be entirely made up of four lanes to cut drive time between the two places," he said.

Building Construction Minister Maheshwari Hazari and PHED Minister Vinod Narayan Jha thanked the engineers for their contributions in rebuilding Bihar.
