"The government had committed Rs 12,000 crore additional resources for identified sector primarily in power and some road projects," Kumar said after meeting Jaitley here.
"12th five year plan is coming to an end next fiscal but we have got only one-third of the committed fund so far. I came here to request finance minister that remaining funds could be released this fiscal and next fiscal," he said. The 5-year plan would come to an end in March 2017.
Kumar said that the State had spent more than what it got from the Centre in the power sector.
"This is well know fact that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced special package. It was also made clear that the State would get Rs 8,200 crore under BRGF during current and next fiscal," he cited.
