Compensate farmers: National Conference

“The marginalized farmers are at the receiving end of all this. Most of the farmers had pinned their hopes on the annual produce to pay for their loans and other debts but the fury of nature left them wailing,” he said.

National Conference on Thursday said that the assessment to ascertain the losses to farmers hasn’t commenced raising trepidation in the farmers who stand worst affected by the recent ill-timed snowfall.

NC’s south zone president Dr Bahsir Ahmad Veeri in a statement said, “The affected farmers have suffered immense losses due to the vagaries of weather and the laidback attitude of the incumbent administration is further pushing the already wretched people to wall.” 

“The marginalized farmers are at the receiving end of all this. Most of the farmers had pinned their hopes on the annual produce to pay for their loans and other debts but the fury of nature left them wailing,” he said.

He implored upon the Governor’s administration to mitigate the mounting woes of farmers and orchardists by speedy reimbursement of comprehensive compensation. “We have been receiving hollow catchwords and catachreses as recompense, but the need of hour is to ensure that the farmers are recompansated comprehensively before the onset of harsh winters,” he said.
