Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar Sunday said the technology is being misused and that any word on good work done by his government was not “percolating to people”. Kumar’s remarks come two days after the Bihar Police’s Economic Offences Unit (EOU) issued a circular warning action against those making “objectionable and indecent” comments online against the state government.
Speaking at an event to mark the birth anniversary of the socialist icon and former chief minister Karpoori Thakur, Kumar asked party workers to spread the word on the work being done by the government. “Technology is to be used for good, but it is being misused… Anti-social work is being done on social media. This is sending a wrong message to the younger generation,” said Nitish.
“They (youth) have to be told about how things were in the past, about the condition of roads, electricity and water supply. They also need to be told what is being done today,” Kumar added, without making any reference to the recent police circular.
