Residents of Karjapatti village in Darbhanga district are stopping water from entering their village using bamboo stems and sand bags, on their own. Speaking to ANI, locals said, "There's utter negligence by the administration. Minister Prem Kumar had visited the area, he could see the situation but didn't inspect. Had he inspected and informed administration, we need not have done this. There are two more locations like this, we will go there too after finishing here."
