Bihar Cabinet Minister Blames Rats For Causing Floods

Published on 2 September, 2017 at 7:00 pm By

Earlier, some police officers of Bihar had accused rats of gulping down more than 9 lakh liters of alcohol that was seized by the state police department. Now, the ministers in the cabinet of Nitish Kumar have accused these poor creatures of causing a flood in the state. Seems it can happen only in Bihar!

The water resource minister of Bihar has blamed rats for causing the flood in the state. After reviewing the situation of the flood, water resource minister Lalan Singh has said that the damage to river embankments is caused by rats and this, in turn, led to the devastating flood.

News18 quotes water resource minister Lalan Singh saying,

Rats are the main reason behind the seepage of Kamla Balan River. Villagers tend to store their grains on the banks thus attracting the rodents. These animals then carve out holes in the embankments thus weakening the foundation.

Bihar flood has taken toll of more than 500 so far IndiaToday

 

But this bizarre rationale doesn’t seem to be accepted by opposition parties. Shakti Singh Yadav, spokesperson of RJD, claimed that the government is trying cover up its failures by blaming rats.



He further said,

Sometimes they say that the rats have consumed the seized liquor, then they blame them for the floods. If rats are causing so much of problem, then they should come up with a plan to tackle the animals. But they haven’t done anything about that as these are baseless arguments.

The theory of rats causing damage to river embankments and eventually leading to floods has been criticized not only by the opposition but also by ruling BJP MLA, Mithilesh Tiwari, who said,

In a written reply in the Assembly, the government had assured us that all dams are secure, then how can they blame the rats. Officials are responsible for this and they should be held accountable.
