This was his third and final time as Chief Minister to take over the reins of Bihar.
Urdu has been given the status of second government language in the state
Earlier in 1980 when Dr. When Mishra became the Chief Minister of the state for the second time, next year, he took a very important decision and gave Urdu the status of the second official language in the state. Soon after that he reinstated Urdu translators in government offices. The Urdu translators were restored for the first and last time in their tenure. Although, in his view, these decisions were for the development of Urdu, but they were directly related to Muslim society. Some Muslim leaders then gave him the title of ‘Maulana’.

Bihar was not divided then and the jumbo size was the era of the cabinet.
