HT Bureau
GUWAHATI, June 28: The Asom Rajyik Krishak Sabha on Monday urged the government of Assam to compensate the farmers of the state who have been severely affected by the flash floods. Sabha’s state secretary Tiken Das said that the farmers, particularly those who cultivate borrowing loans from different agencies, have been facing immense difficulties to survive and revive their trade.
Expressing concern over the miseries faced by the farmers, Sabha state secretary Das said, “The Centre as well as the state Government must focus on the economic compensation and structural rehabilitation of the farmers who have been affected by the flash floods in its worst form. Particularly, those farmers having debts are in big trouble. They will not be in a position to survive and revive their trade without government aid and assistance.”
Peasant leader Das alleged that despite flood has been an annual calamity over the decades, the state disaster management authority and the other allied state government’s departments’ preparedness to mitigate the current disaster was quite poor and neglecting. He said that the current deluge has entirely devastated the state. Das also demanded the Assam Government to press the Centre to recognise Assam flood as a ‘national disaster’.
