Rs 389-crore Dam Collapses in Bihar Hours Before Inauguration

Earlier in the day nearly all leading newspapers in the state had carried huge advertisements announcing the proposed inauguration of the project by Kumar and the state's water resources and irrigation minister Rajiv Ranjan Singh "Lallan".

The breach, officials said, occurred around 5:30 pm on Tuesday when parts of the elevated canal built over a road collapsed when water was "pumped into the canal on a trial basis prior to the inaugural function".
