Rs 50K per acre relief sought for locust-hit farmers

Hisar, August 2

The Kisan Sabha has demanded a compensation of Rs 50,000 per acre for the affected farmers whose crops were devoured by the locusts during the recent attack in some villages of Hisar, Bhiwani and Sirsa districts.

The Kisan Sabha activists alleged that the spurious spray and pesticides had failed to control the locusts. They said the farmers in Gorchi, Gavar, Panihar, Bheria, Chirod, Kalwas, Sarsana, Basra and Chodhariwas were affected as the swarms of locust had damaged their kharif crops during the recent attack. Sabha leaders Shamsher Nambardar and Sube Singh Boora said farmers must be compensated to the tune of Rs 50,000 per acre for the crop loss due to the locust attack.

They alleged that the spraying done by tractor-mounted pumpsets and fire brigade had little effect on the locusts. — TNS
