BJP legislators demand probe report in Kosi river floods to be made public

Patna, July 22 (ANI): BJP leaders on Tuesday protested outside the state assembly in Patna, and demanded that the state government make the 2008 Justice Walia report on Kosi river floods public. A one-man inquiry commission headed by Justice Rajesh Walia, a retired chief justice of the Patna High Court, was probing an embankment breach in the river and submitted its report earlier this year in March. The floods were caused by a swollen Kosi river, which had changed its course, ravaging and devastating several districts in the state. Slamming the ruling Janata Dal United government for not tabling the report, BJP legislator, Nitin Navin, said he and his party would urge the government to do so. Jul 22, 2014
