Patna: Patna Divisional Commissioner Anand Kishore who is a very busy man these days wearing different hats each day – be it planning for a new park in Patna, strategizing on how to attain the status of 'Smart City' for Patna, or trying to pull the battered and wounded Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) by its boots – was once again busy worrying about the slow progress in the upcoming Prakash Utsav celebration to mark the 350th birth anniversary of Guru Govind Singh, the 10th guru of the Sikhs.
Rajgir: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar reserved the last day of the 3-day convention in Rajgir to bash Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) asking the people of Bihar to be very 'wary' of the nefarious designs of the saffron party and remain steadfast on the party's resolve to offer a strong alternative to the BJP in the next Parliamentary elections.
Patna: While the supporters of Nitish Kumar, at the three-day convention of the Janata Dal – U in Rajgir on Monday were busy portraying him as the next Prime Minister of India, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) national Vice President Raghuvansh Prasad Singh was taking exception to the idea saying such talks undermine the issues being faced by the people of Bihar.
Patna: While Nitish Kumar has personally ordered the arrest of those found to be consuming, selling, or transporting alcoholic drinks and their family members, it will be interesting to see how the police treats the arrest of Vicki Manjhi, the maternal grandson of former Chief Minister of Bihar Jitan Ram Manjhi who was caught hauling liquor bottles in Gaya on Friday.
Patna: Politicians of all stripes were making a beeline to offer tribute to the architect of the 'Total Revolution' Jaya Prakash Narayan to mark his 114th birth anniversary on Wednesday by placing flowers at his two statues in the state capital and visiting the veteran socialist's historical home in Kadam Kuan.
