Janata Dal (United) MLC Khalid Anwar has demanded Nobel Prize for his party chief and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. Anwar said that Kumar should be honoured for his efforts in the field of climate change.

Asserting he was right in claiming a Nobel Prize for Kumar, he said that the top award was given to a former Vice-President of the United States for his work in the same field and Kumar has also taken measures in the same field.

“I do not want the Nobel Prize for Nitish Kumar, but I want it for the leader of 12 crore people of Bihar, who today is Nitish Kumar,” news agency ANI quoted Anwar as saying.

When asked about Kumar’s contributions, he said, “In July, Nitish Kumar for the first time organised a joint session where discussions took place on the topic for nearly 8 hours. He again held a special session on the topic today. He has allocated the entire resources of the state and a big-budget towards the cause, all these efforts should be recognised by the national and international agencies.”

“The work done by Nitish Kumar on climate change is commendable and everyone should learn from him,” he asserted.

“Even Bill Gates praised Nitish Kumar for being sensitive on climate change,” he noted.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates recently visited Patna where he met CM Nitish Kumar. Gates praised the Bihar Chief Minister and appreciated the him for his knowledge on problems related to climate change and its consequences on farmers.

“When I’m in Seattle or Washington DC or London or Paris, it’s a big topic. But I was impressed in Patna when he said we have a problem with climate change and we need a way to improve clean water supply” Gates had said.

Anwar added that Bill Gates after meeting Nitish Kumar had said that he felt like he was in London or Paris because issues such as climate change were discussed with him in Bihar, which he did not expect.
