CM concerned over high population growth rate 

Patna,(BiharTimes): Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said on Saturday that the 25.05 per cent decadal population growth in Bihar is a matter of serious concern as impact of economic growth rate is not positively reflected on the people, particular on human development indices like per capita income.

Speaking at a paediatricians’ conference here he said if the growth rate continues in the years to come, the population of Bihar would double by 2051 and put insurmountable pressure on infrastructure, resources and land, in particular, that cannot be stretched to accommodate the growing number of people. 

In such a situation the state would be hard pressed to deal with food and nutrition security of the people.
