Addressing the rally, the Chief Minister said that when we distributed one quintal of grain in Darbhanga, we started calling him Quintalia Baba. I used to get something before. We give three thousand rupees for food grains. Now we transfer the grace amount to the account of the people. We assess crop damage and give its benefits. We help under the Crop Assistance Scheme. We manage the people who are suffering from floods. We had already said that the first right on the treasury of the government belongs to the disaster victims. It has been running since 2007.
Nitish Kumar said that apart from the Central scheme, the state government is transferring the amount of mid-day meal from its treasury to the beneficiaries account. He appealed to the people for the upcoming election. Nitish said that people will have to be more vigilant with the corona regarding the election. I have seen people without masks in many places. All people have to use masks, follow social distance. The elderly of the household, suffering from serious illness, pregnant women and children do not leave home unnecessarily and unless absolutely necessary.
Nitish said, 'We started paying attention to the round of Corona from March. Everyone should be alert. We inspired people in lockdown. Unlock-1 started after the lockdown was over. We have noticed one or two things. The state has sufficient number of ICU beds, hospitals are ready for every situation. People are also counseled through medical kit, doctor consultation facility, call center.
The Chief Minister highlighted the achievements of the government regarding Corona. He said that it has been decided to give compensation of Rs 4 lakh in the event of treatment to death. Migrant Biharis from across the state were kept in a 14-day quarantine center. Over 15 lakh people came back to Bihar and spent Rs 5,300 in 14 days on a person at the Quarantine Center. We served the people in this way. The Center and we also helped in the matter of rationing. We do not serve publicity.
Nitish targeted Tejashwi Yadav in the gestures of the Corona trial. He said that the speakers keep on speaking anything, they are not aware of the facts. Today, more than one and a half lakh people are being investigated in Bihar every day. 32,233 people were screened at a population of one million. The RT-PCR test has a capacity of 11,350 but we want to increase it to 20,000. We are going to get 10,000 RT-PCR testing machines from the Government of India. The center is to give us 8,800 American machine Cobas.
