Back with the NDA, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar will seek a special package of a whopping Rs 2.75 lakh crore from the Centre for the state's
development, JD-U spokesman K C tyagi said today.

Tyagi said Kumar had informed Prime Minister Narendra Modi about various initiatives of his government during their meeting on August 11. The two are slated to meet again in the last week of this month.

"The chief minister told the prime minister that expectations of the people of Bihar have risen (after Nitish joined hands with the BJP). They want developmental works to be done quickly. Modi was positive," Tyagi told reporters.

The prime minister's office, he said, has begun working on projects concerning Bihar.
