Chandigarh: Leader of Opposition in Punjab vidhan sabha and MLA from Dakha constituency H S Phoolka here today has asked the Punjab Government to give prompt and adequate compensation to Punjab Farmers whose wheat crop has been widely damaged due to yesterday’s hailstorm.
Taking notice of Rabi crop loss in Punjab, especially in district of Sangrur and Mansa, caused due to unexpected weather conditions, H S Phoolka asked the Punjab Government to conduct “Girdawari” of the affected areas and assess the crop loss.
Citing previous occasions when the cotton was damaged in cotton belt of a Punjab due to attack of “Chitta” makhi and due to spurious pesticides available in market, many farmers committed suicides in Punjab during Akali Government, Adv Phoolka said. To avoid similar situation, the government should act proactively, he further added to his statment.
