Criticising Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for being in the company of communal forces, his Rajasthan counterpart Ashok Gehlot on Friday said Congress alone could ensure the all-round growth of Bihar.

"Congress alone is irrevocably committed to accelerating the pace of development," he said in Motihari and Muzaffarpur during his day-long tour.

It was to ensure the all-round development of Bihar that the party is contesting all the 243 seats in the ongoing assembly polls in the state, he said, adding the UPA government at the Centre had paid "extra attention" towards providing funds to the state for development.

Rubbishing NDA's charge that Bihar was being given step-motherly treatment by the Centre, Gehlot said Kumar claimed that there was development in the state though he is in the company of "communal forces".
