New Delhi, Mar. 22 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday greeted the people of Bihar on the occasion of Bihar Diwas, the state’s foundation day.
“Bihar Diwas greetings to the people of Bihar,” the Prime Minister tweeted.
The day marks the formation of the state of Bihar and is observed every year on 22nd March.
The idea of celebrating this occasion was introduced by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in 2010 to mark the carving out of the state from Bengal Presidency on March 22, 1912.
The festival has a particular theme each year and Vikasit Bihar Ke Saat Sutra (seven-point vision of Nitish Kumar for development of Bihar) is the theme this year. (ANI)
