Mumbai: Criticizing the Bihar government led by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav on Monday accused it of inaction, while lakhs of people in the state are affected by the floods, lack of jobs and the current ongoing COVID crisis.
“75 lakh Bihar residents are affected by the floods. 40 lakh migrant workers are starving in their homes without work. Millions of Corona patients have been released from the mercy of God due to the breakdown of health services,” he tweeted in Hindi.
Almost seven crore people are without jobs. The traders are frustrated. The 15-year old inhuman ‘Sushaniya Sarkar’ (in reference to Nitish Kumar government) is in deep slumber,” Yadav’s tweet said.
75 लाख बिहारवासी बाढ़ से प्रभावित है। 40 लाख प्रवासी श्रमिक बिना काम-धंधे भूखे घर बैठे है। मृत प्रायः स्वास्थ्य व्यवस्था के कारण लाखों कोरोना पीड़ित भगवान भरोसे है। लगभग 7 करोड़ बेरोजगार है। व्यवसायी त्रस्त है। 15 वर्षीय अमानवीय सुशासनी सरकार गहरी निद्रा में है।

The Chief Minister inspected the flood and COVID-19 situation in these areas.
He said that the water level of the rivers in this region is comparatively low, however, the flood situation will remain till September.
He directed the officials to extend the COVID-19 test in flood-affected areas by setting up a camp at Air Force Station.
