Bihar floods: Narendra Modi speaks to Nitish Kumar over situation; assures support

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday spoke to Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over the flood situation in the state and assured him of all support from the Centre to mitigate the situation.

The situation is being monitored closely, the prime minister said.

Due to rains in the catchment areas of Nepal and Seemanchal district, rivers like Mahananda and Kankai in Bihar have swelled leading to floods in four districts.

The chief minister had demanded an additional deployment of 10 companies of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) in the state, besides deployment of the Indian Air Force's helicopters to carry out relief-and-rescue operations.
