AN E MAIL COSTS BIHAR GOVT. RS. 20 LAKHS!
A private initiative to promote investments in poor backward Bihar by Bihar Times.com and Institute for Human Development has got the Bihar government in a tizzy after Bihar Times portal owner Ajay Kumar sent a casual e-mail to India's President APJ Abul Kalam, and to everyone's suprise this President not only reads e-mails but responds by telling the Bihar government he wants to come to Bihar...This evening India's President will address a Global Meet for Resurgent Bihar.
But the past ten days have been hell for the Nitish Kumar government...patching-up potholed roads and whitewashing street dividers all at a cost of Rs.20 lakh rupees!
