Bihar CM Nitish Kumar on Bihar Floods: 25 people died so far, rescue operations still underway

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday spoke up on the Bihar Floods 2019. He said at least 25 people have died so far, but the rescue operations are still underway. Also, Nitish Kumar said that the 26 teams of SDRF & NDRF teams have rescued around 1,25,000 people safely from the flood affected areas. Meanwhile, 199 relief camps have been set up, 676 community kitchens have been set up, and more such steps will be taken soon.

The monsoon is wreaking havoc in the states like Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and not its Bihar. The Koshi River in Bihar is rising above the level of 16 ft. which is why the state is on alert as well. Now, this is because of the floods in Nepal, which costs a little flow in the Koshi river. Likewise, the people are criticizing the water left from the dams.

Not only Bihar, but many more states are facing the consequences of heavy rainfall. Uttar Pradesh so far has witnessed around 134 collapses and almost 16-17 deaths. However, Mumbai is still facing the havoc of heavy rainfall. Recently, a 1.5-year-old boy found missing after falling into the gutter. Likewise, the Malad Wall Collapse took a lot of lives. Then, a building collapse in Solan took the lives of 14 soldiers and one civilian on Monday.
