Bihar CM to meet PM Modi on Aug 23 to discuss caste-based census issue

Patna: Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday (August 19)  said that he will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday (August 23) to discuss the issue of conducting a caste-based census. Kumar's party Janata Dal is an ally of the BJP in Bihar and is in favour of caste-based census.

According to the official statement released by Nitish Kumar, which reads as follows:- "I had sought an appointment with the PM to meet him along with a delegation from Bihar to conduct the caste-based census. Many thanks to the respected Prime Minister for giving time to meet on August 23."

On Monday, during an interaction with mediapersons, Kumar said., “the demand of the caste census is not just the demand from Bihar but other states also. Our party MPs had written a letter seeking time to meet the Prime Minister. The opposition parties in Bihar also wanted to meet the Prime Minister with us. We had written a letter to the Prime Minister regarding this." The caste-based census and its impact on the country's political landscape remain a sensitive issue for the government, given the fact that seven states will go for assembly polls over the next year.
