My fight against corruption will go on

Patna: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who has brought about a dramatic transformation in Bihar after he took over the reins, has vowed his fight against corruption will go on.

Claiming credit for introducing a slew of path-breaking anti-corruption measures, he wrote in his blog recently, “It is a promise I fulfilled and my fight against corruption will go on.“

Resuming his blog writing on September 13 after some gap, Kumar referred to the setting up of a primary school in the house of a senior government official facing a disproportionate assets case.

He said he was happy at having demonstrated something he had been rather passionate about.

"We have opened a primary school. Last Thursday, we shifted a primary school for underprivileged children into this house in Patna, seized under the Bihar Special Courts Act which our government had enacted last year," he wrote in his blog.

The building, confiscated by the Patna district administration following a directive from a special court trying corruption cases, was handed over to Human Resources Department which subsequently converted it into a primary school in no time.
