Patna, Sept 10: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today launched multipurpose 'Prakash Kendra' project and directed the authorities concerned to complete it within 14 months, instead of 18 months as proposed earlier.
Kumar, while launching the project here, said that multipurpose 'Prakash Kendra' was not the correct nomenclature to be used for the project and it should be called 'Prakash Punj'. Officials had informed that the project would be completed within 18 months but he was of the opinion that it should be completed within 14 months so that devotees coming to Patna on the occasion of next 'Prakash Parva' could enjoy the new structure, he added. "Detailed and authentic information regarding Guru Govind Singh, the 10th Guru of Sikhs would be available for devotees in Prakash Kendra", Chief Minister said adding that the state government would invest a total amount of Rs 54.16 crores for the project. There would be four dwars (entrances) and five Takhts in proposed 'Prakash Kendra', he informed.
Kumar said that life of Guru Govind Singh was full of motivations and inspiring for the people. In his short span of life, he had done a number of remarkable works which would be remembered for ever. The goal of the government for construction of 'Prakash Kendra' was to provide all authentic and relevant informations about Guru Govind Singh which could inspire a feeling of dedication among the people towards the cause of motherland, he stated.
