CM Kumar has been demanding the status of special category for a long time. Today, while assuring people for the betterment of Bihar, he asserted that he see no point why the same cannot be done.

“There is no reason why it cannot be done,” he added.

The CM has been demanding the special category status for Bihar since 2007 and it often comes to headlines when the elections are near.

Currently, there are a total number of 11 states having this status – Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir (now a Union Territory), Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim, Tripura and Uttarakhand.
