Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan today said the Bihar flood crisis was the “worst in almost three decades” as he took up the matter with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who assured him that the Centre was providing all possible help to the eastern state.
Talking to reporters after meeting the prime minister, the LJP leader said Modi assured him that the Union government in coordination with the Nitish Kumar dispensation had taken effective steps to help the affected families.
He said 9-10 districts of Bihar were facing a grave flood crisis.
“It is something I have not seen since 1987. It is very grave and the government is working on a war footing to provide relief to people. It is natural that people will suffer due to the enormity of the flood… The prime minister said all help is being provided to Bihar,” he said.
