Nitish agrees to socio-economic survey of all castes, communities in Bihar

Patna, 1/6: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday said his government will undertake a “socio-economic survey of all castes and communities” in the state, following the Centre’s reluctance to conduct a caste census nationally.



Talking to reporters here after chairing an all-party meeting, Kumar said the necessary cabinet clearance for the mammoth exercise will be given soon.


He asserted that “all parties unanimously supported” the proposed move and replied in the negative when asked if he faced any opposition.
