Darbhanga’s Keoti has had to bear the brunt of the floods. Ruksana Parveen, a specially-abled pregnant woman, got stuck in the floods and was helpless when she went into labour.
Finally, she had to reach the hospital in a boat made out of a tube. “No ambulance was available. One tempo driver agreed to take us. We had to pay Rs 800 to reach the hospital. What to do? We have no other option,” said Ruksana’s mother Kaniza Khatoon.
15 Lakh People Affected Across 10 Districts
At least 15 lakh people have been affected across 10 districts in the current wave of floods in Bihar. Darbhanga district is the worst-hit.
“The water levels are on the rise. Nobody from the authorities have come to our aid. Nobody has come to see the situation here and the condition in which we are. There are no facilities here. There is no mode of transport to leave the village,” said Lal Paswan, flood-affected resident of Keoti.
