“I need Nitish Kumar’s government so that development of Bihar doesn’t stop and that it doesn’t fall short,” wrote PM Modi in a four page letter.

In the letter PM  Modi said the people of Bihar are not voting on the issues of caste but on development. “Votes are being cast not for false promises but for strong will and intentions, not for bad governance, but for good governance. Not for corruption, but for honesty, and not for opportunism, but for self-dependence. I am convinced of Bihar’s development,”read the letter that was shared by PM Modi from his twitter handle.

PM spoke about the NDA government in Bihar ‘double engine government’ and said that he was convinced that Bihar will reach new heights of development in this decade’ with the coalition government of Janta Dal (United) and Bharatiya Janta Party(BJP).

The PM focusing only on the developmental aspects of the state in the latter said that only the NDA which can provide better infrastructure and better law and order that are important for social and economic prosperity of the state.

He further added that with better connectivity, there will be further improvements in ‘ease of living.’
