Rajgir: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, on the concluding day of the two-day camp of the party legislators in Rajgir on Monday, directed the officials to complete the Rajgir Convention Center within the timeframe while also ensuring it exceeded the minimum standard requirement.
Kumar said the above while surveying the site of the project to be built at the cost of Rs. 28 crore.
As before, the Chief Minister stressed the importance of safety in the sprawling facility that boasts a sitting capacity of 1300 visitors.
"Make sure there are adequate fire exits and fire-fighting paraphernalia in the building to prevent any tragedy from taking place," Kumar said adding the sound quality of the auditorium must also be of world class so important national and international conventions could be held in a pleasant and business-like environment.
The Chief Minister who planted saplings of mahogany and gulmohar trees within the construction area, appealed to the party leaders to donate a month's salary towards plantation of trees under the Green Bihar scheme undertaken by the state government.
"Turning Bihar green is very vital for the development of the state and I want all of you take this very seriously and do everything in your might to achieve this goal," Kumar said.
