Declare Bhopal drought hit : Kisan Morcha

Bhopal : Many tehsils of 36 districts of state, including Bhopal, are drought hit due to scant rainfall. The survey of crop damage in these areas should be started immediately and suitable compensation should be provided to the farmers.

A memorandum to this effect addressed to the chief minister was submitted to the Bhopal collector on Tuesday by a delegation of BJP Kisan Morcha under the leadership of their state president Ranveer Singh Rawat.

On this occasion Rawat said memos have been submitted in all drought-hit 36 districts and the main demands include suspension of recovery of bank loans and electricity bills, ensuring proper electricity supply for forthcoming Rabi crops and providing employment to farmers for construction of water bodies in their fields.

Rawat said the Bhavantar Yojana is a boon for the farmers and expressed gratitude towards the CM for implementing the scheme. Among those present on the occasion included Morcha’s state office secretary Padam Singh Thakur, Ashok Meena, Ashok Samrat, Sandeep Shrivastava, Vikram Singh, Purshottam Sharma and other Morcha functionaries.
