WINDS OF CHANGE

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

There was a time when Congress-led UPA would have done any­thing to woo Bi­har Chief Min­is­ter Ni­tish

Ku­mar. But now, with Congress go­ing into an al­liance with Lalu Prasad’s RJD and Ni­tish with the Third Front, the love has van­ished. The Bi­har govern­ment de­manded a re­gional of­fice of Na­tional In­ves­ti­ga­tion Agency (NIA) be set up in Patna on the lines of other states. This was in the wake of the ter­ror at­tack in Patna in Fe­bru­ary. When NIA of­fi­cials took the file to Union Home Min­is­ter Sushilku­mar Shinde, he asked them to keep it on hold. For now, there won’t be an NIA of­fice in Bi­har.
