Modi, Nitish To Share Dais For First Time After Patch-Up

The first will be during the centenary celebration of Patna University and the second occasion will be the foundation laying ceremony for a bridge on the Ganga at Mokama, around 100 km from here.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to visit Patna on Saturday to attend the centenary celebrations of Patna University.

Nearly all the top politicians, including Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, his deputy in the Cabinet Sushil Kumar Modi, RJD chief Lalu Prasad, senior bureaucrats and eminent academicians of Bihar have studied at the Patna University. However, the programme is also likely to create controversy as Patna Sahib MP Shatrughan Sinha has said he was hurt because he has not been invited for the programme despite being an alumnus of the university.

"Prime Minister Modi's visit to the Mokama area is significant".

In August, Mr. Modi along with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had conducted an aerial survey of the flood-hit districts of north Bihar.

Vice-Chancellor R B Singh, however, denied the charge and said invitations had been sent to all the guests.

They are former students of the University.

Yashwant Sinha, who is now member of the BJP's "Margdarshak Mandal" and has been extremely critical of PM Modi and BJP National President Amit Shah's over Shah's son, Jay Shah's company Temple Enterprises reportedly recording a turnover of Rs. 80 crore in 2015 after it showed just Rs. 50000 turnover in 2014, will also be attending the event and is learnt to be lobbying hard along with Shatrughan Sinha to share stage with the PM.

Earlier, former Finance Minister and BJP leader Yashwant Sinha too had raised serious concern over "consistent slowdown of economy in the country".
