PM Modi was sharing a public platform with the Bihar CM for the first time after the coming together of JD-U and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over two months ago.

On a one-day visit to Bihar, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said he and Chief Minister Nitish Kumar would take the state to new heights of development even as he announced that infrastructure projects of Rs 53,000 crore were underway or completed in the state.

Nitish Kumar was personally present at the airport to receive Narendra Modi, from there upon the wish of the Prime Minister, both the leaders went to visit the newly opened Bihar Museum.

Modi said that the Centre has changed the fate of Bihar by launching so many schemes and thanked the Bijhar government to adopt the schemes introduced by the Centre.

"The commitment of Nitish Kumar towards the progress of Bihar is commendable". The recent Antyodaya expresses flagged off will also improve connectivity between Bihar, eastern India and other parts. "A good leader, while taking credit for the good works done by his administration, also does not shy away from taking blames for his failures", Kumar said at the release of a book on the three years of Modi in power written by Uay Mahurkar at a function held at Rabindra Bhawan in Patna.

The development projects launched by the Prime Minister include a Rs1,200 crore bridge across Ganga under the Namami Gange Programme and four national highway projects.

A central university status would have made Patna University eligible for funding from the centre's resources and led to a massive major upgrade in its facilities. "All the universities of the country can compete for this", the PM said.

The Prime Minister said that he had observed, that across States, the top levels of the civil services have people who have studied in Patna University.

The Prime Minister also attacked the previous UPA government saying that they always dragged India behind rather than working for its development.

Sending out a message to the youngsters, Modi said: "As youngsters, I urge you to think about innovative solutions to the problems faced by people around you".

Modi said reforms in the country's education sector have progressed at a slow speed and there have been differences among educationists which had hampered innovation with the governments too not measuring up to the task. "And, projects whose foundation stones are being laid will give impetus to Bihar's development", Modi said. "We are going to organise a mega event for the centenary on December 10 in which all former students of the university will be invited", he added.
