The cycle scheme to boost education among girls in Bihar on Tuesday drew praise from British High Commissioner to India, James Bevan. Bevan during an hour long meeting with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in Patna on Tuesday evening said initiative to link education with growth in Bihar was a matter of discussion.

Generating self confidence among women through education and women empowerment was indeed a pioneering step, he said according to an official statement in Patna.

The British High Commissioner gathered valuable information about implementation of Right to Service Act in Bihar. He was impressed to know that various public utility services were provided to people within a definite time frame under the Act in the state.

Bevan sought to know about newer initiatives taken in the field of education, health and infrastructure development. He extended an invitation to Kumar to visit Britain to share growth story of Bihar with people there.

Principal Secretary to the CM Anjani Kumar Singh, his counterpart in Health Deepak Kumar and General Administration D S Gangwar were present during the meeting at One Anne marg residence of the CM.
