Addressing the students, the PM said, "As youngsters, I urge you to think about innovative solutions to the problems faced by people around you". "We will provide an assistance of Rs. 10,000 crore to 10 private universities and an equal number of government ones for a period of five years. The Centre attaches topmost importance to the development of eastern India", Modi added.
"It would have been better for the university if the crores of rupees spent on PM Modi's trip had been ploughed into the university", he said.
Besides, sewer network of 234.84 kilometres will also be developed in the Beur and Saidpur zones, the statement said.
PM Narendra Modi after laying the foundation stone of projects under Namami Gange programme also addressed the crowd present there. "We intend to do the same for our universities and ensure that our centres of higher learning figure among the best 500 in the world", Modi said. Once again taking a jibe at the oppositions, Modi said that the other governments only made false promises as a part of their election campaigns and forget them as soon as they come to power.
Congress leader and former education minister Ashok Choudhary said he was disappointed that PM Modi did not accept the request. But his government is not like the rest of them, "we always launch a scheme and make sure that we prepare a roadmap to fulfil it too", he said.
According to the Newspaper, No one has damaged the country more than such leaders with distorted mindset", Modi said and added, "Bihar probably had not witnessed as much road construction works as it has in the past three years."Talking about rural electrification works, PM said, "We had the target of providing electricity to the left-out 18,000 villages in 1000 days and we have completed electrification in 15,000 villages".
In order to make universities world-class, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has recently announced to give Rs 10,000 crore to 20 varsities across India. "All these universities have to do is to demonstrate their potential to become world class", Modi added.
But when the youth of India started showing the world the real India at the fingertips in IT Revolution, the eyes of the world were opened. He had expressed his pain saying that he was very attached to his alma mater and was very disappointed at not being invited. He said that he considers it his honour to visit Patna University and be among the students. Teri mehfil mein lekin hum na honge'.
Patna University vice-chancellor Rash Bihari Prasad Singh, however, sought to clear the air over the issue, claiming that the "printing of invitation cards got delayed and that's why cards have not been sent to them. This university has nurtured students who have contributed greatly to the nation".
