Reports should have been sent regularly. There were challenges during the Corona period, but the report should have been sent on time.
The purpose is to provide government benefits
He said that Chief Minister Nitish Kumar says that the first right on the state’s funds belongs to the disaster victims. With this thought in mind, we got the investigation done. The process was started from May 18. 10 days time given. Time extended due to non-completion of work. Now on the basis of the report that has come out, benefits will be given to the victims. The aim is only one that the government benefits should reach those who are really suffering.
