Government failure rocks the boat

10th June 2010: District administration Madhepura had hired 462 boats in during Koshi flood disaster.Out of these 282 boats were returned to the boatmen.Rest 180 were traceless.On boat fare also arose a dispute.In Vaishali district the per day rent was entered in log book as Rs 340 for Madhepura but the Madhepura district administration agreed to pay the amount not more than Rs. 38 only per day.Aggrieved by this decision the boat owners knocked the door of High Court.On the direction of Hon'ble court a probe has been started under the then Additional Collector Rajendra Ram where it has been found that 180 boats was till then traceless.On further inquiry 65 more boats were recovered from different parts of the district and 25 other was found in ruined state.Rest 100 boats are still traceless.
The moot point is whether district administration would pay compensation to the owner of the lost boats and fair fare to the all boatmen to maintain her credibility?
