Bihar's child sensation Sonu Kumar, 11, came into the limelight after he interacted with the state's Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and complained about his father, who regularly consumes liquor, with the result that he is not getting a chance to study properly. Sonu also pointed out low-grade of education in the schools of his native village in Nalanda district. He had also complained about the callous attitude of police, as liquor is available everywhere in the district.
When Nitish Kumar asked him about his ambition, Sonu had said that he wanted to become an IAS officer. His conversation with the Chief Minister also went viral on social media due to the confident attitude he showed in such a young stage.
