Mr Modi was received by Bihar Governor Satyapal Malik, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi at Patna airport. Without mentioning the RJD-Congress combine, he said the Centre would whole-heartedly support the state in its effort to fight corruption and promote the clean India campaign. The Prime Minister also flagged off a number of projects, besides special train to mark the occasion of 'Champaran Satyagrah.' Modi said in the last one week, more than 8.5 lakh toilets have been constructed in Bihar and said this was a big achievement.

The phase of bharkana (instigation), latkana (negation) and bhatkana (misleading) is over and those who don't like this change are feeling pangs, he added.

The Prime Minister paid tribute to Bihar on three counts: When country was a slave, Gandhi launched Satyagraha from this place and Bihar made him Mahatma and Bapu, after the independence here and when country's democracy was threatened Jaya Prakash Narayan came forward an save the democracy. "This proves that soon Bihar would catch up with the national average" he also said that it was Bihar that transformed Gandhi Ji into Mahatma.

The prime minister said he laid the foundation stone for two rail projects for Champaran and flagged off the first run of the Champaran Humsafar Express between Katihar and Old Delhi.
