After Lalu, Nitish to lecture at IIM

india Updated: Nov 25, 2006 17:57 IST

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is all set to deliver a lecture at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A) on Sunday, two months after his political rival and Railway Minister Lalu Prasad did so at the premier institute.

Nitish Kumar is to speak on the challenges and opportunities in developing Bihar.

The chief minister completed one year in office on Friday and left for New Delhi after releasing a report card outlining his government's achievements. He will go to Ahmedabad from the capital, an official of the chief minister's office said in Patna.

On September 18, Lalu Prasad had charmed the students and faculty of IIM-A while talking about the turnaround of Indian Railways. The students liked his witty one-liners and out-of-the-box business models.

IIM-A Director Bakul H Dholakia had invited Nitish Kumar in September to lecture at the institute's global student event that began on Thursday.

Over 1,000 students from 20 top business schools in Europe, the US and East Asian countries are likely to attend Nitish Kumar's lecture.
