Kim, visiting Bihar with a delegation from his country to find avenues of mutual partnership, said he had also told Chief Minster Rabri Devi to "change the face of the state with the help of agriculture".

"I told her that her development dream will only be fulfilled when farmers, experts and the government work together as a team," Kim said in an interview.

Not only Bihar, but any Indian state could become prosperous by according more priority to agriculture, said Kim, who has been running a farmers' movement in his country for five decades.

"Unless villages develop, a country cannot prosper," he said, saying his own country was an example.

"The farmer's movement may start in a small way in the villages, but it will lead to development all over the state," Kim said.
