Meanwhile, taking a dig at the JD(U)-BJP government, Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Assembly Tejashwi Yadav said that there is neither testing nor treatment in Bihar. He targeted the government on the ever-rising virus infections.
He tweeted: “Corona infection has increased exponentially in Bihar and the government has no worries, neither for testing nor for treatment of infected persons. The entire cabinet, administration and government are busy in preparing for elections. The government is also hiding data. If the government does not see through this, the situation may become more explosive by August-September.”
