RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav slammed Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over the issue.
In a sarcastic tweet, Tejashwi said: “Bihar’s 2nd largest Hospital NMCH has turned into an aquarium that too filled with drain water.”
“Hope the JD (U) doesn't declare this as a stunt by Lord Indra. Even Lord Indra is highlighting the wrong policies followed by this wrong government for 14 years," the tweet added.
