Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar defended his repeated demand for special status to the state saying it (the status) will boost private investment in a big way to accelerate its industrial development.

"I am pushing for grant of special status to Bihar only to bring private investment in a big way to expedite industrialization process for generation of employment opportunities," he said at Pataliputra industrial area after inaugurating a diamond cutting unit, the first of its kind in the state.

Claiming that the law and order situation in the state has improved, he said, "The present was as good as it gets for investors, who should take advantage of the positive atmosphere and make investments in Bihar."

"If any investor has doubt about the law and order situation in Bihar, then such an investor should confirm it with the Director General of Police before taking the decision," Kumar said.
