The Patna high court today dismissed a PIL seeking its direction to the central government for implementation of the special package of Rs 1.25 lakh crore for Bihar which was announced by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi during last Assembly polls.
A division bench comprising Chief Justice Iqbal Ahmad Ansari and Justice Anjan Mishra dismissed the PIL filed by advocate Anil Kumar Mukund who sought direction for implementation of special package of Rs 1.25 lakh crore for Bihar.
The bench said that it could not pass such an order and the petitioner could approach other forum for redressal of grievances.
The court dismissed the PIL after hearing both the counsel for the central and the state governments, besides that of the petitioner.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced a special package of Rs 1.25 lakh crore for Bihar at a public meeting at Ara in the run-up to the Assembly polls in the state last year.
