Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi to discuss the flood situation in the state.
Earlier on Monday, PM Modi promised the centre’s total support to five flood-hit states in rescue and relief operations.
“Centre assures total support in the rescue & relief operations. I hope the situation in the affected areas normalises at the earliest,” PM Modi wrote in a tweet.
“HM @rajnathsinghji is closely monitoring the situation. He has spoken to the CMs & taken stock of rescue & relief operations,” he added.
According to reports, over two lakh people have been affected due to the flood in the state and around 15,000 people have been sheltered in 82 relief camps after being evacuated from flood affected areas.
The Centre on Monday night rushed 10 additional NDRF teams to the flood affected areas as Ganga is flowing above danger mark at six places in various parts of three districts – Digha ghat, Gandhi ghat, Hathidah in Patna, Bhagalpur and Kahalgaon in Bhagalpur district, Munger district and Buxar district.
