Patna | Jagran News Desk: The Janata Dal (United) on Sunday released its 'vision document' entitled 'Saat Nischay (Part-2)', just days before the first phase of polling for the Bihar Assembly Election 2020.
Releasing the JD(U)'s 'vision document', Bihar Chief Minister and party president Nitish Kumar noted that 'Saat Nischay (Part-2)' focuses on "development and self-reliance" and said that it is in continuation with the earlier set of promises made to the public by the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA).
"We have established many educational institutions in Bihar during our rule. And to extend it, we will now focus on enhancing the quality of education in institutions such as ITIs and polytechnic institutes to turn them into centres of excellence in Bihar," Nitish Kumar was quoted as saying by news agency IANS.
"We propose to give loans of up to Rs 5 lakh or 50 per cent of the project cost without any interest to women. The idea is to boost their entrepreneurship and make them self- dependent," he added.
