Residents of north Bihar’s 11 flood-hit districts are struggling to find dry land to cremate or bury the dead. In many areas, floodwaters have risen to the waist level.
According to reports, water has been entering the Ahiyapur police station for the past two years.
The CM said that works being done on the embankments will help in preventing any miseries in flood-prone areas.
Thirty-seven more persons perished in flood-hit Bihar, where over 1.46 crore people are still affected.
