Sukhbir blames state govt for peasants’ plight

Fazilka, September 9

SAD president and Ferozepur MP Sukhbir Singh Badal visited more than 12 rain-affected villages in the Jalalabad and Balluana Assembly constituencies of the district.

Badal said even though crops in thousands of acres had been destroyed, the Congress government was "unmoved".

"No official has been deputed to listen to the grievances of people, and no compensation has been awarded to the aggrieved. Besides, no effort is being made to install pipes to drain out water from the affected fields," alleged Badal. Standing crops in nearly 90,000 acres have been adversely affected due to rainwater. Four children have lost their lives after the roof of their houses caved in due to incessant rain. Besides, 57 'kutcha' and 'pucca' houses have been damaged either partially or completely. — OC
