Nitish-KumarThe Chief Minister of Bihar, Nitish Kumar, has met the Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu to seek inclusion of Patna in the Smart City list and discussed several issues related to urban development in the State.

Noting that Patna could not be shortlisted for inclusion in Smart City Mission, Kumar also suggested that all such State capitals should be given one more chance to compete for selection in the Centre’s ambitious project.

Listening to Nitish, Venkaiah Naidu informed him that the inclusion of cities from each state in Smart Cities Mission was based on the evaluation of all claimant cities by state governments and the selection of first batch of 20 cities was based on a competition among 97 cities as per criteria evolved in consultation with states. L.
