Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari, while inaugurating the Munger-Begusarai Rail cum Road Bridge project said that Central government will provide more funds for the construction of roads and bridges in Bihar. On which, JD(U) MP Sunil Kumar Pintu said, "We totally agree with Union Minister's proposal. Only the construction of roads and highways will not put Bihar on the path of progress. Hence, Special status should be given to the state." Advertisement

The NITI Aayog in its report has projected Bihar as 'poor' and 'backward' state. Since then, JD(U) has intensified campaign on Twitter; seeking Prime Minister Narendra Modi's attention towards Bihar. On the other hand, policy to accord Special status to states was scrapped during the UPA regime, therefore, PM Modi gave Special Package instead of Special status to Bihar. Whereas, JD(U) does not want to 'retract' on this issue, which often leads to 'war of words' between the two NDA alliance partners in Bihar.
