Delhi can't run without Bihar: Nitish

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Sunday evoked Bihari sentiments while addressing a rally in the outskirts of the national Capital.

“Delhi will come to a stand still if Biharis stop working for a single day,” asserted the chief minister from Bihar.

He said that Delhi is the capital of the country and everyone has the right to come and work here. He lamented that jokes are made on Biharis coming to the Capital. “It is wrong to think that we aren’t the liability on the Capital,” said Kumar.

Further, he boasted that the migration from the state is not the result of joblessness, rather “it (migration) shows industriousness of the people”.

“We do not go anywhere to beg. We achieve by the dint of our hard labour. If there’s any  recruitment on the moon, Biharis will go there also,” said the chief minister.

The rally was organised in Burari in north Delhi to celebrate 100 years of the foundation of the state and to felicitate prominent Biharis of the Capital.

The Nitish government is celebrating centenary year of the foundation both in the state and outside. Functions are being organised across the country particularly in those cities where there is sizeable population of migrants from Bihar. Delhi has four million migrants from the state.

He felicitated prominent Biharis with the Vishisht Bihari Samman.
