Earlier, Bihar Chief Minister Nutish Kumar had asked all district officials to get ready to fight a likely drought in the state. The rains, therefore, have come as a good news, particularly for the farmers. Notably, a rain deficit of 41 per cent has been recorded for the month of June, while the deficit figures stand at 43 per cent for the month of July so far.
In 2018, as many as 280 blocks in Bihar's 38 districts reportedly were declared drought-hit after deficient rainfall.
