According to a statement issued here, while expressing unison with the families whose properties, crops and livestock were damaged due to weather vagaries, Sagar urged upon incumbent administration to rush revenue teams to the affected areas to assess the losses suffered by people, so that an effective compensation is worked out and distributed among the affected without delay.
