Bihar Diary

Shotgun and Prakash Jha in action..
Cinestar and BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha has submitted a proposal to Bihar’s NDA Government, for setting up a film city in Patna that would match the very best in Mumbai.
Besides, he has also evinced interest in opening a five-star hotel in the State Capital.

“I have sent the proposals for the film city and a five star hotel to Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi a week back,” Sinha told PTI on Sunday, over the phone from Mumbai and said the response was “encouraging”.

Prakash Jha, on Saturday in Patna, said he was also interested in turning the Bailey Road area between Patna High Court and Secretariat into a Connaught Place-like business center to further change the skyline of the capital that currently looks like a overgrown slum.

Jha said he had held talks with the Building Construction Minister Monazir Hasan and discussed his plan in great detail.”Several acclaimed builders in Mumbai and Delhi have already started to vie for the project spanning nearly 50 acres of land on the southern side of the Bailey Road,” Jha said.

Golfer’s paradise coming up.

The UK-based Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) on Friday submitted a detailed project report for setting up a “golf resort” on a 200-acre plot of land near the Bodh Gaya international airport. “Once we get the official nod, we will have a 18-hole golf course, with two hotels (one five-star and the other three-star) and other real estate development in the area within 30 months,” said Randeep Waraich, director (operations) of the PGA, which has been in existence since 1901. The estimated cost of the project is about Rs 100 crore, he added. “The basic idea is to sell destination Bodh Gaya to foreign Buddhist tourists coming by chartered planes,” remarked Bihar tourism secretary R S Tiwari.

ATM’s in Vaishali Village.

Hundreds of poor landless labourers in Bihar’s Vaishali district will soon be able to withdraw their wages directly from ATMs, freeing themselves from the corrupt clutches of middlemen, moneylenders and contractors.

The district administration has opened nearly 300 bank accounts in the name of enrolled labourers in the last three days and is likely to open nearly 200 more accounts to ensure ATM cards for them.
This is a first of its kind in the state, to ensure that labourers’ wages go straight into their pockets. ‘Unskilled labourers from the unorganised sector would gain access to ATMs to withdraw their wages from next month (July),’ said district magistrate Sanjeev Hans.Central Bank of India will be installing ATMs at the block level to facilitate this move.
