Ensure sufficient water for wheat sowing: BJP

Our Correspondent

Abohar, November 1

The BJP today sought district administration’s intervention to ensure sufficient canal water to facilitate wheat sowing in the villages located on the tail-end of sub-canals in Abohar sub-division.

Leading a delegation of party’s rural block activists to Deputy Commissioner Manpreet Singh Chhatwal at Fazilka, MLA Arun Narang said the state government claimed to have spent Rs 24.5 crore to reconstruct many sub-canals in the past year but the Malukpura sub-canal had been carrying only 25 per cent water. This had affected cotton sowing in Gumjal, Panniwala Mahla, Achadiki, Bhangerkhera, Kallarkhera, Usmankhera and Tootwala villages, the MLA said.

The deputation while submitting a memorandum demanded timely planning to facilitate sufficient canal water for wheat sowing in tail-end villages as groundwater was totally unfit for cultivation. The DC assured to take up the issue with the Irrigation Department.
