On Board/ Purnia, Sept 5 : Union Minister and Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) president Ram Vilas Paswan has said that he along with his party members would provide as much relief as possible to flood victims in Bihar.

Paswan conducted an aerial survey of flood-affected Purnia district and distributed clothes and food among flood victims on Thursday.

"Our solo aim is to provide as much as possible relief material to the flood victims through our party and our ministry. We provide support to them," said Paswan. According to aid agencies, millions are now living on embankments, roads and in overcrowded camps in filthy conditions.

"I stayed on a raised place for four days," said Mohammad Mustaque, a flood victim.

The army has so far deployed 37 columns for flood relief operations in the state.

According to officials, three million people have been displaced from their homes and at least 90 killed by floods in Bihar after the Kosi River burst a dam in Nepal, swamping hundreds of villages in Bihar.

About 650,000 people have been evacuated so far.
