Breaking News LIVE Updates, Feb, 24: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday said that electricity in the state will not be given for free as the government is providing it at a very low price. Speaking during the budget session, CM Nitish asserted that he never said to provide electricity for free in Bihar. “I have been saying since the beginning that it will not be given for free. We provide it at a very low price so that it remains safe.
