Patna : Bihar CM and JD(U) national president Nitish Kumar on October 7, 2018, appreciated the functioning of Self-Help Groups (SHG) in the state saying they are repaying loans unlike big shots who flee the country after defaulting on loans. The CM said that over 8 lakh SHGs have been formed in the state for helping poor village women inĀ  carrying out their own small business.

Addressing a function organised here by JD(U)’s ‘Samaj Sudhar Vahini’ wing, Nitish said that big shots take billions of loan from bank and flee the country. But the women running these SHGs make timely repayment of loan, he said. This is not a small thing. This shows the level of awareness among these women, Nitish said. He also referred to what his government has done for women’s empowerment including reservation for them in panchayats and government jobs as well enforcing prohibition.

Nitish said he does his work and does not believe in publicising them unlike other state governments. He also said that development will not have much impact unless the society gets rid of all social evils.
