Lalu thinks Foreign Policy honour for Nitish a publicity stunt


Patna,(BiharTimes): Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad on Wednesday termed as publicity stunt the inclusion of Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar in the list of 100 global thinkers by a US magazine, Foreign Policy.

Talking to reporters he said such things are nothing but publicity materials far from truth which keep coming often.

Nitish’s name figured at the 77th position for “turning around India’s poorest state.”

The list also includes India's chief economic advisor Raghuram Rajan and writer Pankaj Mishra.

Myanmar’s pro-democracy leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, tops the list. But what is surprising is that Myanmar’s president Thein Sein, along with author Salman Rushdie and Malala Yousufzai, are also in the list of thinkers.
