Special status for backward states if opposition alliance forms govt in 2024: Nitish

ihar CM Nitish Kumar on Thursday promised special category status for all backward states if the opposition alliance manages to form a government at the Centre after the 2024 Lok Sabha polls. “If we get a chance to form the next government at the Centre, all the backward states will be granted special status. There is no reason why this can’t be done,” Nitish said. This is the first major announcement by Nitish in the past one month since he quit the NDA.
