Further, while delivering the speech at Patna University, PM Modi said the measures like grant of central status were "a thing of the past" and his government has taken "a step forward" towards making 10 private universities and 10 government ones world class.

"The commitment of Nitish Kumar towards the progress of Bihar is commendable".
The prime minister said when the country celebrates the 75th anniversary of Independence day in 2022, he wants to see Bihar standing among the list of prosperous states. He also urged universities to move from conventional teaching to innovative learning and said there was need for students to "un-learn, de-learn and re-learn".

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.
"But today while welcoming PM Modi to "his Patna University", he tweeted, "...even I got an invitation, alas very late and with a very short notice...delayed by the "more loyal than the King's people" involved in the affair.
