Presiding over a review meeting of various schemes for Tal development, he directed the WRD to set up a task force to study all Tal areas in Bihar and mitigate the problems like water logging on permanent basis.

Kumar asked the WRD officials to finalize a work project in this regard and make a presentation of the same.
