More than 70 hectare of paddy fields are in need of water as this is the peak time for sowing paddy.

The cleaning and an attempt to re-open the approximately 2 km long canal was the result of the affected farmers’ plea to the local MLA as they were in dire need after the concerned Executive Engineers of the Khuga canal Division 2, Water Resource Department (formally IFCD) told them that they had no functioning office nor had any fund to clean the canal which block irrigation water flows due to the absence of maintenance where the water was block by the debris.

He said that the DC of Churachandpur had directed the Water Resource Department to clean the canal and when they had made an excuse of no funds from the department, the MLA stepped in.
