GHAZIPUR, UTTAR PRADESH: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday said he would not allow metro project in Patna until some technique is developed that could ensure that historical value of the city is not affected due to it.

“Patna is a historical city and was known as Patliputra in ancient times. We will not allow metro there until some technique is evolved that could ensure that underground tracks don’t affect the historical value of the city,” Mr Kumar said at a programme in Ghazipur.
