remind us of the time in 1975 when boats were plying on the roads everywhere. Due to the havoc caused by rain, floods have deprived the people of Patna of their basic daily amenities especially our children who always are in need of milk,egg & vegetables.— Shatrughan Sinha (@ShatruganSinha) October 1, 2019
As the incessant rains created havoc across India, Bihar and UP have been hit by it the worst. The highest number of deaths have been reported in UP with Bihar losing more than 20 lives, according to reports.
