After providing equipment for cleaning the canal at Khuga Canal Division 2, MLA LM Khaute of Churachandpur AC on Wednesday inspected the site with the leaders of Farmers’ Union and officials of Water Resource Department, Churachandpur and took stock of the situation.

The MLA said that farmers and their problems are one of his priorities and when they approached him, he forwarded their problems to the DC but was not immediately materialised as there seemed to be a fund constraint. As such constraints cannot be an excuse for the farmers who need to sow seed in their field, he had arranged for a contractor to facilitate water for more than 70 hectare of paddy field, the MLA said.

The Farmers’ Union of Khuga Canal Division 2 also facilitated the MLA on the occasion for his help where the MLA promised to take up the problem further to the concerned minister for annual maintenance of the canal as it's an annual problem. The MLA also expressed hope that the farmers’ problems will be solved and added that he will always stand by them.

Regarding the report of police apprehending black marketers and shortage of fertilisers, the MLA said that he had personally distributed 300 bags of Urea to the farmers and was doing his bid to procure more while also requesting the police to thoroughly investigate the black marketing case.

LM Khaute also inspected the intake point of the Khuga Canal Division 2 (which was also used to supply drinking water as well as for irrigation) with officials from the Water Resource Department. In a dilapidated state, the MLA said that it has to be taken up under bigger schemes as it will take a lot of money for which he will take further steps in consultation with the concerned Minister.
