Nalanda (Bihar) – “Nalanda is more than just a name, it is a mantra, an identity, a declaration that books might get destroyed in fire, but knowledge persists. The revival of Nalanda will mark the beginning of the Golden Age of India,” said Prime Minister after inaugurating the new campus of Nalanda University in Rajgir.

The Prime Minister said, “I am happy that I got the opportunity to visit Nalanda within 10 days after swearing in as PM for the third time.”
