Rampur Distributary, Babupali Mines, has demanded the supply of canal water to the last head
After the talks, the government will provide water next Tuesday.
Binika, 10/05 (Akshay Kumar Pujahari)- Farmers have complained of a drought due to the inability of the canal water to reach the last head of Hutima village under Babupali mine on the 14th side of Babupali mine in Hirakud-Bargarh canal Rampur district.
“The situation in the Rampur Canal SDO is not conducive to the farmers,” he said. About 30 acres of paddy fields at the end of the 14th RD are reported to be on the verge of extinction.
According to the farmers’ complaint, the Rampur Canal SDO had earlier written to Abhinandan Kishan to supply water to the beehive, but the SDO had taken charge of the Rampur distributor, Jai Rohit Das, and took over the reins. Rampur SDO, Shri Kisan, was immediately instructed to discuss the matter with Prabhas Kumar Rath, Engineer, Barpali Canal AC7 Easten, who immediately asked the Binika representative to come up with a solution to the possibility of a rice drought.
After receiving the ban, Babupalli Minor 14 RD reached Rampur SDO, Rampur Jai, and other employees at 9 am today to discuss with the farmers whether the water supply will be provided from Tuesday as there is a rotation of the Rampur distribution center tomorrow. It remains to be seen whether the paddy will survive and the farming families will feel relieved. Many farmers, including Mahendra Vhoi, Saidagar Deheri, Govind Vue, were present.
