Making his first visit to Pakistan, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar Saturday said he was captivated by the warmth and goodwill here as he shared his experiences in realising his quest for all-round development in Bihar.
"Pakistan and India have common history and heritage. Our bilateral relations are witnessing an all-round progress. We take pride in shared history that goes back to time immemorial," Nitish said at a luncheon hosted by Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah. "I feel happy to be in Pakistan. I bring good wishes and greetings for people of Pakistan."
Nitish, who arrived here on Friday on a week-long visit, said he was "deeply touched" by the hospitality extended to him here.
Sharing his experiences, the Bihar CM said that "seven years back we started our quest for establishing governance and ensuring an all round development," which was both "a challenge and an opportunity". "Good governance is the mantra of our growth story," he said, adding that his state has a zero tolerance against corruption.
"With our resolve for growth with justice, manifold achievements have been marked across sectors like governance, law and order, human resource development, infrastructure and agriculture," he said. "Improved law and order has paved the way for restoring the authority of the state. No communal riots or social discord have been witnessed in the last seven years. With communal amity and social harmony came development."
He said an atmosphere of peace has been ensured for minorities in Bihar during the past seven years.
