After delivering the convocation address as the chief guest, the PM Modi will fly back to the national capital the same day in the afternoon.

According to the BHU Vice Chancellor Girish Chandra Tripthi, "The Prime Minister has declined to accept the varsity's proposal to be conferred an honorary degree of Doctor of Laws during its convocation ceremony."
