Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday termed the Union budget “disappointing” and alleged that the state was “neglected” with no attention having been paid to demands such as special status and a special package of Rs 20,000 crore.

Kumar, who was away in the north Bihar district of Supaul for his ‘Samadhan Yatra’, came out with a written statement on the budget, upon return to the state

capital, late in the evening.

“The budget is disappointing and lacks vision. Every year, the priorities of the budget are changed and these remain unfulfilled because of a loss of focus and lack of sufficient funds,” said the JD(U) leader, who dumped the BJP in August last year and has since been pitching for a “united opposition” for the Lok Sabha polls next year.
