The Lok Sabha MP from Pilibhit wrote on his Twitter handle that while much of the Terai is badly flooded it was painful to see the “common man to fend for himself”.
He further wrote that it was sad that when the common man needs the system most, he is left to fend for himself in such tough situations when natural calamity like floods has hit them hard. “If every response is individual-led then what does ‘governance’ mean” he went on to question.
