Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar recently ordered government officials to issue an advisory to people requesting them not to light fire including for ‘havan’ or puja between 9 am and 6 pm.

The bizarreness of the order is that it asks people not to cook between the period.

And what is the purpose of this order? To curb the number of fire accidents that have been happening in various parts of Bihar due to searing heat conditions.

Nitish has asked the Principal Secretary, Disaster Management, to issue an advisory while they are reviewing number of cases of fire in Patna division which comprises of six districts – Patna, Nalanda, Bhojpur, Rohtas, Buxar and Bhabua.

Meanwhile, Nitish has also instructed the Power Secretary of the state to change loose electricity wire from various areas so as to prevent them from catching fire as preventive step.

 

The decision was also supported by RJD president Lalu Prasad Yadav.

From April 28 onwards, the Bihar CM will be holding similar review meetings of other divisions of the state, so as to take stock of all the fire incidents and also get an update on the decision to impose a total ban on liquor in the state.
