nitish kumar, narendra modi, nitish modiBihar Chief Minister will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi soon to take up financial issues of the state, the Assembly was informed on Thursday.

Announcing this while replying to a debate of the budget, Finance Minister Bijendra Prasad Yadav said personal equation between two individuals need not have a bearing on discharge of official duties.

In the context of Nitish and Modi, it would be a routine thing when the two leaders meet each other as the Chief Minister and the Prime Minister and not as Nitish and Modi, he said.

Kumar has himself said on several occasions in recent times after taking over reins of Bihar that he will have no hesitation in calling on Modi to discuss financial issues related to Bihar.

Kumar had shared tumultuous relationship with Modi for many years and JD(U) snapped ties with the BJP 21 months ago.

Kumar had called off a dinner for visiting BJP leaders in June 2010 after a photograph of Modi, then Gujarat Chief Minister, had come to Bihar to attend the BJP national executive, appeared in local newspapers holding hand with the JD(U) leader.

    Nitish Kumar, like Mamta Bannerji, is an elected representative of the people of the state. He has the right to express to the Centre the concerns of the people whom he represents. It is the Centre's duty to listen to his problems and address them. That is what Democracy is all about. Personal differences should not come in the way of serving the people, which ought to be the common goal for the leaders both at the Centre and in the States.
