Sangrur, August 9

After farmers refused to give free-of-cost land to widen Ghaggar, Lehra SDM has sent his report to the Sangrur Deputy Commissioner (DC). Last month, a breach had damaged standing wheat and other crops on thousands of acres of land in the Moonak area.

“On July 21, during the visit Cabinet Minister Sukhbinder Singh Sarkaria, who came to inspect the plugging operation, affected farmers had offered to give 20-ft land free on both sides of Ghaggar to widen its embankments to prevent breach in future. After we approached them, farmers refused to give their land. We have informed our seniors about it,” said Lehra SDM Suba Singh.
