"Today people talk about history without proper knowledge about the subject," Kumar told reporters on the sidelines of 61st All India convention of India Historical Record function in Patna.

He, however, did not name his Gujarat counterpart. Kumar's sarcastic remarks was apparently aimed at Narendra Modi who in his speech at BJP's "Hunkar rally" on October 27 had mentioned Taxila being in Bihar, Porous was defeated on the bank of Ganga instead of at Satluz and Chandragupta belonging to Gupta dynasty instead of Maurya dynasty.

The erroneous reference of historical facts was highlighted by Kumar earlier also which brought Narendra Modi's subsequent speeches under scrutiny of historical facts.

Modi was subsequently laughed at for confusing Shyamji Verma with Shyama Prasad Mukherjee and Mohanlal instead of Mohandas (Mahatma Gandhi).

Kumar further said his government was building a mammoth International museum in Patna to preserve ancient historical records and manuscripts.
