Nitish Kumar's party JD(U) reiterates demand for special status for Bihar at key meet

Patna: The Janata Dal United (JDU), one of the main allies of the ruling BJP at the Centre, concluded its national executive meeting with a resolution calling for special state status for Bihar.

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's party stressed the long-standing necessity for this status to address the state's economic and developmental disparities.

Speaking to the media post-meeting, a senior JDU leader remarked that the demand for special state status for Bihar is not new.

It is essential for accelerating Bihar's growth and tackling the state's unique challenges, he asserted.

The resolution also emphasised the importance of safeguarding Bihar's reservation quota, which was recently increased to 65 percent.

The JDU proposed to add this quota to the Ninth Schedule of the Constitution to shield it from judicial scrutiny, ensuring its continuous enforcement.

Furthermore, the party also expressed deep concerns about alleged irregularities in the NEET examination and called for a thorough investigation.

The JD(U) leader stated that the credibility of such crucial exams should be maintained at all costs to restore the trust of students and parents in the process of the conduct of the exams.
