NC expresses concern over losses to crops, property in north Kashmir areas
Srinagar : Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Monday expressed concern over heavy losses to farmers and orchardists following heavy hail storm and gusty winds that unleashed havoc in the parts of north Kashmir the other day urging the divisional administration to provide compensation to the effected people.
While expressing anguish over the loss of livestock, property and standing crops in various hamlets of north Kashmir, party leaders Dr. Sajad Uri, Javaid Dar, Qaisar Jamsheed Lone, and Mir Saifullah in a joint statement said, “The hapless people are beset with gloom and despondency. Struggling to come to terms with the losses, they have set their eyes on administration to rescue them from the setback. It is expected that the district administrations will assess the losses at an earliest and ensure disbursement of compensation to the affected without delay.”
The leaders said that the government has so far failed to provide insurance and financial support to farmers in the events of crop failure and destruction due to severe weather conditions in previous months.
