Rahul Gandhi’s prescription for Bihar that handsomely produces IAS, IPS
If the state of Bihar can produce so many IAS and IPS officers every year who have made immense contributions to the development of many Indian states, why can’t Bihar improve its own state of affairs? The question came from none other than Congress leader Rahul Gandhi who addressed a few gatherings in that backward state recently. The AICC general secretary, however, showered praise for youths of Bihar who have contributed in economic rejuvenation of other states.
He reminded the state’s youths with talents to qualify IAS exam that they needed to look within and introspect why Bihar turned out to be a laggard for the last 20 years!
