Tilakrajpur (Bihar), Aug 4 (ANI): Flood situation worsened in Bihar as some more villages were submerged, leaving thousands of people in need of immediate help.
The swollen Bagmati River breached its embankment in Sitamarhi district, in a stretch of 40-50 metres at Tilakrajpur area, on Saturday, inundating vast tracts across a number of villages.
" The water has submerged many villages. People are living on roadsides and our children have fallen ill and we have not received any medical help," said Ram Kirpal Singh, a villager.
" Chief Minister Nitish Kumar came and gave a speech, but we did not get any relief. There is no fodder for our cattle. There is water everywhere," said Srinath Singh, another villager.
Though relief work has started, the situation is yet to be brought under control.
People have been marooned and numerous villages are cut off.
Nitish Kumar had made an aerial survey of the district on Sunday and assured immediate relief. (ANI)
