PM Modi ignores Nitish's request for central status for Patna University

Updated 14 Oct 2017 10:15 PM

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's hope to get central university status conferred on Patna University was dashed with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday bypassing his request.

During the centenary celebration function of Patna University here, the Chief Minister, whose JD-U has become part of the NDA and is ruling Bihar in alliance with the BJP, said that he requests with folded hands that Prime Minister Modi announce the much-awaited central university status to Patna University.

"People of Bihar are looking forward to PM Modi with hope that you will announce central university status to Patna University," he said.

However, Modi downplayed Nitish Kumar's demand and instead suggested that the state government involve the alumni of Patna University to develop it and urged the faculty and authorities of Patna University to come forward with their excellent performance to become part of education reform in the country.
