Sukhbir Badal appealed to the CM in the interests of farmers and sought compensation for crops affected by the temperature
Chandigarh- The temperature has risen in the month of February this year. The month of February this year was the warmest in India since 1907 with an average maximum temperature of 29.54 degrees Celsius. The effect of the rising temperature has started on the crops. Because of the effect, crop yields are feared.
Akali Dal President Sukhbir Badal has also appealed to the Chief Minister for farmers. He posted a message on his Facebook saying that abnormally rising temperatures and strong winds are severely affecting yields of wheat and other crops that are currently reaching maturity. I appeal to the chief minister of Punjab to assess the loss of the farmers and generously grant them necessary government support and take immediate necessary steps to save the crops. I would like to remind that the government of Shiromani Akali Dal has always dealt prominently with such agricultural crises.
Let me tell you that Holi is on March 8. Even before Holi, the weather department has predicted a major change in North India’s weather. According to media reports, the Indian Meteorological Department has forecast rain and hailstorms in many states. Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra and Gujarat can get rain from March 5 to March 8. Apart from this, the Western Disturbance is likely to affect North West, West and Central India from March 7.
