Patna: What has come as a shocking revelation that almost all central sponsered schemes are either running at a snail's pace or are not progressing satisfactorily in Bihar.

Things have come to such a level that accusations and counter accusations were leveled during the meeting of district Vigilance and Monitoring Committee held on Monday. Apart from this, progress of works going on the state under MNREGA, Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY), including a number of water supply schemes, were also reviewed in an another meeting presided over by Pataliputra MP, Dr Ranjan Prasad Yadav.
