Arvind Kejriwal Appeals To Charanjit Singh Channi To Compensate Farmers For Rain Damaged Crops

Due to unseasonal rain, farmers have to confront a huge loss as hailstorms damaged major crops like sugarcane, paddy, potato, peas in many parts of Northwest India last week. And to cover up the losses, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that all SDMs and DMs in Delhi were polling the sites where the crop was ruined. He ensured compensation to farmers in the capital city. He added the government fixed the rate of compensation at Rs 50,000 per hectare. 

But now, the Delhi CM appeals to Punjab’s CM Charanjit Singh Channi to provide immediate compensation to farmers of the border state for crop damage due to unseasonal rain. He took to twitter to appeal to the Punjab’s CM. 

“Crops in many areas of Punjab have been completely damaged due to unseasonal rains. In Delhi, we have announced Rs 50,000 per hectare as compensation to farmers who have suffered losses. I appeal to Punjab CM Channi to provide an appropriate and immediate compensation to farmers in his state,” Kejriwal tweeted in Hindi.

Moreover, Kejriwal also said, “I hope that the survey will be completed within the next two weeks so that we can dispense the compensation within one and a half months after that.”
