Patna: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, speaking at the 30th Foundation Day of the Bihar State Cooperative Milk Federation (COMFED) in Patna on Tuesday, said that another dairy plant would be opening in Dehri-on-Sone on April 25 essentially making Bihar self-dependent in cheese production.

Speaking before a number of dairy producers and cooperative society members, Kumar said that with the opening of the new plant in Dehri, Bihar would double milk collection per day from 18 lakh liters to nearly 35 lakh liter per day.

The Chief Minister also said that a new veterinary college would be opening in Bihar later this year to give a boost to the dairy industry.

"I am very impressed with the COMFED and urge all cooperative societies to follow their model of growth. The state government is here to give them all the support that they need," he said.

Kumar said that his dream of at least one Bihari dish on every plate in India was very close to becoming a reality particularly after the opening of several Sudha Dairy outlets in New Delhi.

The Chief Minister also gave out awards in various categories to a number of milk unions of Bihar.
