To pay tribute to the late Union Finance Minister from BJP, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar unveiled a statue of Arun Jaitley in Patna on his birth anniversary on Saturday. At the inauguration ceremony of the statue, family members of the late leader Arun Jaitley were also present along with the Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi.

This was supposed to be the 67th birth anniversary of the late leader. Arun Jaitley had passed away on August 24, 2019, at AIIMS (Delhi) after suffering from a prolonged illness.

Nitish Kumar on the occasion also announced that Arun Jaitley’s birth anniversary will be celebrated as a state function every year. Previously, Nitish Kumar had announced to install the statue in August. In December, he fulfilled his promise kept to the public.

As quoted by ANI, Rohan Jaitley (Arun Jaitley’s son) said, “Arun Jaitely had a deep connection with Bihar as a State. He has been a big influence on the expansion of the party in the State. There has been a big contribution to Arun Jaitley in terms of social work. This also helped to build a strong relationship between both the leaders.”
