Leader of the Opposition in Bihar Legislative Assembly Tejashwi Yadav has attacked the Nitish government after visiting the flood-affected areas of Darbhanga and Madhubani districts. He tweeted- ‘39 Lok Sabha MPs of NDA are missing from areas. None of the ministers in charge of the government went to the respective districts. The entire cabinet is absent. The water resources minister has no idea neither does the health and disaster management minister. We are helping all possible victims and the needy.’
Apart from Bihar, two more people died due to floods in Assam on Wednesday. These deaths occurred in Barpeta and Morigaon, after which the total death toll in the state has risen to 125. According to the state government, the number of people affected by the flood has reached above 72 lakh.
NDA के 39 लोकसभा सांसद क्षेत्रों से गायब है। सरकार के कोई भी प्रभारी मंत्री संबंधित जिलों में नहीं गए। पूरा मंत्रिमंडल नदारद है। बाढ़ विभीषिका में जलसंसाधन मंत्री का कुछ अता-पता नहीं और ना ही स्वास्थ्य व आपदा प्रबंधन मंत्री का।— Tejashwi Yadav (@yadavtejashwi) July 23, 2020
