'Use free Wi-Fi to download books'

Nitish Kumar said free Wi-Fi facility at college and university campuses is part of the seven resolves of the Grand Alliance government in Bihar to promote governance.

"The objective is to provide free Wi-Fi facility to help youths to move ahead in life and to become digital smart," he said.

The Chief Minister said that it was noticed that youths in Patna have not been using free Wi-Fi facility for reading and enriching knowledge.

"I was informed by concerned officials that one person had downloaded 300 films in the stretch of a 22 km free Wi-Fi facility in Patna. It is an example of misuse of an opportunity," he said.
