Bihar Rains

Meanwhile, the capital city of Bihar is drowning due to incessant rains in the last few days, and the Nitish Kumar administration has not been efficient enough to take necessary measures to save the citizens. However, Opposition led by RJD has also not been very helpful amid the waterlogging in Patna. Notably, Leader of Opposition in Bihar Assembly Tejashwi Yadav has been tweeting to slam the Nitish Kumar administration. But, the workers of his party RJD have also asserted that by staying away from the city and not extending help and support to the people affected due to rains, Tejashwi Yadav has missed an opportunity to gather support of citizens.
