1 Mins read

As Bihar continues to grapple with unprecedented floods and with the Ganga breaching the danger mark, relief and rescue operations have been stepped up across the state.

While the exact figure of the death toll is yet to come in; a rough estimate pegged the toll at 100 across Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.

Central and state disaster relief teams have rescued 26,000 people so far on Monday. The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) has stepped up rescue operations in Bihar where several rivers have been flowing above the danger mark.

Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi, who was stranded at his residence in Patna, was also rescued by NDRF personnel.

Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad visited the state on Monday to meet the state’s legislators and officials. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar also met officials of the flood-affected districts.

“I have had meetings with our MLAs and officials. I was told that all gates of Farakka Barrage have been opened and bigger pumps from Coal India will be made available. NDRF has informed that there are enough boats.
