Following their meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, Bihar's two Deputy Chief Ministers, Samrat Choudhary and Vijay Kumar Sinha, returned to Patna on Monday.
The discussions primarily focused on the imminent Cabinet expansion in Bihar, as revealed by Choudhary and Sinha. They expressed gratitude to PM Narendra Modi for posthumously honoring two-time Bihar Chief Minister late Karpoori Thakur with the Bharat Ratna. Choudhary emphasized the positive impact of this recognition on the prestige of backward caste and Dalit communities in the state.
Choudhary further stated, "We sought guidance on effective governance in Bihar. The Prime Minister unequivocally instructed us to fulfill the commitments and promises made during the 2020 Assembly elections at any cost."
Sinha highlighted the purpose of their visit, stating, "Our trip to Delhi was to thank PM Modi for eliminating 'Gunda Raj' and 'Jungle Raj' from Bihar. The double-engine government has returned, with PM Modi and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar committed to establishing 'Sushashan' (good governance) in the state."
