PATNA: With  Bihar due for polls in a few months’ time,  Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday launched a high-tech campaign called ‘Badh Chala Bihar’ to reach out to the people to seek their opinion and ideas for preparing a vision document for the state for the next 10 years titled Bihar@2025&#8242.

“Our target is to reach out to four crore people living in 40,000 villages across Bihar in the next six-seven weeks for a feedback on the state’s development and involve them by seeking their ideas for its development in the next 10 years,” the CM said, while launching this campaign. “The vision document would be prepared on the basis of suggestions coming from the common masses of the state,” he said.

According to the JD(U) strongman,“Through this initiative, all key achievements made by the state government in the last 10 years would be showcased before the masses and their opinions recorded”.

Interestingly, the architect of the campaign was Prashant Kishore, a consultant, who had earlier worked as key strategist in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Lok Sabha election campaign. Besides, a few other professionals would help in its execution.
