Nitish sticks to Motihari for central varsity

Patna: Talks of setting up Central University of Bihar (CUB) in Gaya instead of Motihari is a conspiracy by the Centre to create discord among the people of the two places, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said on Monday.

Stating that he would stick to his demand for opening of the university at Motihari, the work place of Mahatma Gandhi, Kumar told reporters "It is impossible for us to go back ... We have already sent the proposal for setting up CUB at Motihari to the Centre."

The government was ready to provide land for the varsity at Motihari not in one place but in two others, he added.
