Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav who recently advocated scrapping Bihar Public Service Commission (BPSC) due to delay caused by it in government appointments, on Thursday met with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to discuss his plan and to strategize on the appointments of personnel in various boards and corporations in Bihar.
Sources said the two discussed putting their favored candidates in boards and corporations and also the chances of doing away with the BPSC so appointments could be made without any delay.
The RJD chief arrived at the Chief Minister's residence at about 10:30 am and stayed there for nearly an hour.
"We talked about the flood situation in Bihar and I asked him to get the loss estimated so we have a better picture of the damages incurred by this year's devastation," he said while talking to reporters after emerging from meeting with the Chief Minister.
Yadav further said that he was told by Kumar that the Center had not given a single paisa yet towards flood relief in Bihar.
Insiders, however, said the meeting was more on the issue of appointments of officials in various boards and corporations in Bihar.
"The government had earlier asked all officials of government boards and corporations to turn in their resignations so these posts could be refilled by more qualified employees. A number of posts currently remain vacant and today's meeting was also meant to find a way to fill these positions quickly with new officials," a source in the Janata Dal – U said.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
