For a change politicians in Bihar have not called for a rally but have joined hands to fight HIV/AIDS and are set to launch an awareness drive, as the disease poses an increasing threat to millions across the state. Alarmed by the rising numbers of HIV/AIDS cases in the state, politicians, cutting across party line, have decided to join in the campaign.

Another news, UNICEF assisted by the Bihar Education Project Council (BEPC) has decided to launch a massive campaign to make over four lakh girls literate in one month. UNICEF sources told that the BEPC together with UNICEF would launch a massive campaign next month to teach both out-of-school girls and academically weak girls studying in schools. “The campaign will use the accelerated learning strategy developed by Pratham, an NGO”, sources said.
