Patna: With only two days left for the much-anticipated visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi who will be participating in the 100th anniversary celebration of Patna University on Saturday, the local administration stepped up on its efforts to clean the state capital and repair all broken signs, traffic signals, and street lights on roads where the PM is expected to travel between Patna Airport and Patna Science College.

On Thursday, several top officials including District Magistrate Sanjay Agrawal and Chief Secretary Anjani Kumar Singh visited Patna Science College where the main function is to be held on Saturday and reviewed preparation from both readiness and security angles.

At the time of reporting, the entire stretch between Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) and Patna Science College on busy Ashok Rajpath had been cleaned up by removing piles of garbage that had been accumulating for past several days being both an eye sore and a health hazard.

According to one Patna Municipal Corporation (PMC) official, more than 300 tractor loads of trash had been removed from between Kargil Chowk near Gandhi Maidan and Patna Science College in the past three days.

Unwanted growth of shrubs that made walking a chore for the pedestrians were also removed on Thursday and efforts were on to fix all dangling electric cables and change all light bulbs that had not worked in years.

The Prime Minister will remain in the function between 11:00 am and 12:15 pm after which he will leave for Mokama to lay the foundation stone of a bridge over Ganga.

At the main area of function at Patna Science College, the administration has built six gates, each allowing entry to certain types of guests like the VVIPs, bureaucrats, special guests of the Patna University, university staff and employee, and current students.
