As part of a PMO initiative to orient newly inducted civil servants to state-specific issues, Union Ministers from Bihar today met 2004-batch IAS officers, who have got Bihar cadre or who hail from the state, and shared their views with them.
Union Ministers Ram Vilas Paswan, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Radha Mohan Singh, J P Nadda and Upendra Kushwaha met about 26 such officers. While Nadda is from Himachal Pradesh and represents it in the Rajya Sabha, he was born and studied in Bihar.
“This is a Prime Minister’s Office initiative. The idea is that ministers from a particular state share their experience and views with young officers as they may find it helpful in discharging their duties,” Paswan told PTI.
