Nursarai (Bihar), June 20 (PTI) Industrial growth in

Bihar is all set for a great leap forward with several schemes

in place to boost entrepreneurship and the Nitish Kumar

government receiving proposals worth thousands of crores from

investors, state Industries Minister Syed Shahnawaz Hussain

said on Sunday.

Talking to reporters here on the sidelines of a

function, Hussain said the government has received investment

proposals worth Rs 6,199 crore of which a significant

proportion have been for Nalanda, the home district of the

chief minister, which boasts of a robust infrastructure.

"Investment proposals worth Rs 528 crore are for

Nalanda only. Every district in Bihar will witness industrial

growth. The current tenure of Nitish Kumars dynamic

leadership will be known for accomplishments in

industrialisation and job creation", said Hussain, whom the

BJP shifted to state politics recently.

The industries minister also spoke of the governments

efforts to promote entrepreneurship with "targeted schemes for

all sections SCs, STs, transgenders and those from the

general category".

The minister disclosed that investors found Nalanda

attractive because it was well connected to Patna and that of

the proposals received so far, a majority were for the

production of ethanol.

"Bihar is taking up ethanol production very seriously.

It is the first state to have formulated an ethanol policy",

Hussain added, according to a release. PTI NAC
