Patna. As the waterlogging in the capital entered its ninth day, Sushil Kumar Modi said the state government is “doing all it can to help the people affected”. Mr Kumar, he said in a tweet, has “turned challenges of disaster into opportunities to serve the people.

Nitish Kumar has finally revealed why the rescue operation and the water removal process was slow. He is sure that looking at the water level ICC will grant Patna the status for the host of World Cup 2023 which is scheduled to be held in India. ICC was heavily criticized for the world cup in England where rain played spoilsport in most of the matches. It was concluded that ICC wants to organize the biggest tournament in tough conditions and places where there would be waterlogging.

ICC has been checking the water levels at many cities in India which have applied for hosting the world cup final. Patna right now is at the top of the list but workers have to ensure that the water level stays up for the next couple of days when ICC will officially grant Patna the hosting rights of World Cup 2023.

Nitish Kumar is working hard to make workers and the government machinery aware of this situation. A poor state like Bihar needs a world cup final to boost tourism and hence the economy.
