Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Thursday approved 22 key proposals, including metro projects for four cities - Muzaffarpur, Gaya, Bhagalpur and Darbhanga. The chief minister, during his cabinet meeting, also cleared recruitment proposal in the Sports Department in the state.

The metro projects for the four cities in the state come amid the construction of the Patna metro in the state capital.

Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is carrying out the construction in Patna as a part of the Patna Metro project.

Patna Metro is currently under construction in the city, a flagship project whose foundation stone was laid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on February 17, 2019.

The 31 km-long Patna Metro rail project, comprising the Danapur-Mithapur-Khemni Chak corridor (Line-1) and Patna Railway Station-Pataliputra Bus Terminal corridor (Line-2), is expected to benefit over a million passengers from the Bihar capital and will also reduce the number of vehicles and ease congestion, the DMRC had earlier said.

DMRC is working on the Patna Metro project, which is aimed at decongesting the city using a mass rapid transit network for the first time. The commencement of the metro in Patna will strengthen the city's public transport which is reeling under the heavy load of increasing population which causes heavy traffic jams in the city.
