Singh urged the state government to immediately provide relief to the farmers as many irrigation facilities have been destroyed and urgently need repair. We need to help our farmers by doing an early restoration of the water pump sets along with the electric motors and diesel sets have been totally washed away in these flood affected areas and also their electricity bills for the pump sets, used for irrigation purposes be waived off.
Singh also joined the loss assessment revenue team at Raipur , choga , bera and gopre-basti and requested the Sub-divisional Magistrate R.S Pura Sh. Rajinder Sharma to complete the task at an earliest , so as to provide relief well in time.
Singh further said that our government has to protect the interests of farming community and it will not be compromised at any cost. Agriculture is the backbone of the Indian economy. Food security in India rests heavily on the Public Distribution System (PDS) and the PDS itself cannot be operated unless farmers are given enough support so that they can continue to produce.
