Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Sunday called on Former President Pranab Mukherjee on Sunday in the national capital. Bihar Chief Minister was in the national capital to participate in the fifth NITI Aayog Council Meeting that held on Saturday.

However, it is still not clear what both the bigwigs discussed in the meeting.

Earlier on Saturday, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar speaking in the NITI Aayog meeting pitched for his demand to give special status for Bihar.

He further requested the Centre to scrap the centrally sponsored scheme (CCS) from the state and proposed an alternative provision for the implementation of schemes named ‘Central Sector Schemes’.

He further pointed out that the centre’s contribution earlier was 75% to 90% for this CCS, however, now these schemes are running with the proportional ratio of 60:40 ratio (Centre: State).

Apart from Bihar Chief Minister, CMs of many states were present in the 5th NITI Aayog Council meeting.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired the fifth meeting Niti Aayog’s Governing Council on June 15. However, this was his first meeting after storming back to power in the recently held national polls.

The Governing Council of the Niti Aayog includes all the Chief Ministers, Governors of State, Lieutenant Governors of Union Territories, several Union Ministers and other officials.

NITI Aayog’s first meeting held on February 8, 2015, while months later on July 15, the second meeting of the council took place.

While the PM Modi headed its third meeting on April 23, 2017. It was during the third meeting when the PM Modi discussed the idea of conducting elections of the Lok Sabha and the state assemblies together.

While the last meeting that was held a year ago on June 17, 2018, discussed the measures taken to double farmers’ income.
