“The rescue operations are underway. In Bihar, the water flow depends on rains in Nepal’s Terai region. The evacuation is selective in most places as the rural people decide when they should go to the camp, but they are persuaded to do so if the situation is severe,” said NDRF Director-General (DG) SN Pradhan.
