The Chief Minister said that Bihar government gives diesel subsidy to farmers for irrigation. Irrigation with electricity is cheaper than diesel. The government is providing electricity to every farm. The farmers are being subsidized. Work will have to be done on connecting small rivers of Bihar with each other.
