“There is no expressway in Bihar. So we have demanded for an expressway for which Gadkari has responded positively,” Deputy Chief Minister said.

He also shared agenda of his meeting with the minister on X.

“We have demanded for construction of Buxar to Bhagalpur Expressway, a bridge parallel to JP Setu on the river Ganges. Elevated corridor between Patna to Koilwar and Anisabad to Didarganj. Also long pending projects like Patna-Gaya, Hajipur-Chhapra, Maheshkhunt-Saharsa-Purnia National Highway were also dicussed. We also discussed the early completion of Muzaffarpur bypass,” the Deputy Chief Minister wrote on X.
