The Kosi river, which is called the mourning of Bihar, sits with it every year, which makes thousands of people homeless from their homes, to stop these floods and to use the water of the Kosi river for irrigation, the Bihar government and the central government together. Ko has brought the river scheme of Seine, let me tell you that the central government and the state government have jointly planned to connect the rivers, work has also been started on the plan of connecting the river at the level of the state government, let me tell you that under this scheme Kosi river will be connected with Matching river.
For information, let me tell you that JDU’s national president, JDU’s national president cum leader Lok Sabha Lalan Singh raised this issue. Responding to this, Union Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat said in the House that DPR has been prepared for the Kosi-Mechi link scheme. Certainly there is a provision that a scheme with irrigation potential of more than 2 lakh hectare can be recognized as a national project. In this way it meets the standard, but there are many other points that need to be fulfilled. If the plan fulfills all the criteria then it will definitely be considered.
