Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Saturday advised youths, particularly students, to use free Wi-Fi facility to download books instead of films.

“My government has decided to provide free Wi-Fi facility at college and university campuses in the state soon. Youths, particularly students, should use this facility to download books instead of films,” Nitish Kumar said at a public meeting during his ongoing Nischay Yatra in Katihar district.

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.
