Patna: Seven years after he returned a check of Rs. 5 crore meant for flood relief in Bihar to the government of Gujarat saying he had no interest in getting help from the then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday did a U-turn when he accepted a check of Rs. 5 crore towards the flood relief fund from Gujarat Revenue Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama.

The Revenue Minister who flew to Patna to hand over the check personally to Kumar said that though this was not a large sum of money, he hoped it would help in some small way the victims of this year's flood in the state.

Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi was also present on the occasion.

When asked what had changed in the last seven years, Kumar said that political wind had changed in the state and there was no time to dwell on the past.

"Our main goal is to ensure all of the flood victims in Bihar were taken care of in every way possible and we can discuss the politics of it at some other time in future," the Deputy Chief Minister said when asked the same question.
