Gujarat ahead of Bihar in development: Thakur

Bihar BJP chief C P Thakur, who will start campaigning for Gujarat Assembly polls from next week, said on Friday "Gujarat development model was better than Bihar's". He reiterated he would "seek vote for PM material" Narendra Modi.

Thakur, who had sent a group of BJP workers to Gujarat three weeks ago, said: "Bihar BJP leaders are joining Gujarat campaign with full vigour. Deputy CM Sushil Modi will campaign in Kachchhand Bhuj and I will visit Surat and Ahmedabad".

Asked if he will refer to Bihar's growth story, especially after recent Planning Commission figures showing 21 per cent growth during the 11th Five-Year Plan, he said: "Gujarat is way ahead of us. Consumers are getting LPG pipes at their homes. I have not yet checked Plan panel figures. But when Gujarat has offered a better development model than Bihar, there is no need to mention Bihar story there."
