New Delhi, August 20, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)
Congress Rajya Sabha MP and former PPCC president Partap Singh Bajwa has urged Prime Minister Modi to help augment the State Government’s capacity in compensating those who have been affected by recent disaster due to heavy floods in the state.
In a single page letter, Bajwa has explained the situation in Punjab.
Following is the text of Bajwa’s letter to PM Modi.
The State of Punjab has faced an unprecedented deluge that has resulted in the loss of crops, cattle and livestock. This anomalous situation has resulted in thousands of acres of crops being lost, as well as washing away the top soil, further affecting the agriculture sector. Farmers, whom have lost their crops, cattle and livestock due to the floods, will face undue financial damage.Especially since these floods have happened in the middle of Kharif season. Given that the damage could potentially be severe, further burdening farmers and other individuals who have lost much due to these floods, I urge you to help augment the State Government’s capacity in compensating those who have been affected by this disaster.
