Patna: After finishing his function at the Patna Science College to mark the 100th anniversary of the Patna University on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a surprise request to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar asking him if he could pay a visit to the newly-built Bihar Museum before leaving for Mokama where he was to inaugurate a host of schemes related with bridges and road construction.

Kumar, naturally, was more than willing to oblige the Prime Minister who, with his entourage, left Patna Science College and reached the spanking new museum, a dream project of the Chief Minister built at the cost of over Rs. 500 crore.

At the museum, Modi admired artifacts, some going back to a few thousand years.

The Prime Minister showed immense interest in knowing the details about each item and the museum curator explained to him the importance of each relic to his satisfaction.

Modi wrote an inspirational message in the guest book and signed it before leaving for Mokama.

Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik. Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, and LJP President and Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan were also present at the museum.
