In Dirba, farmers set ablaze residue near tehsil complex


In Dirba, farmers set ablaze residue near tehsil complex

Sangrur, November 3

Dirba farmers today burnt stubble on government land adjacent to the Tehsil Complex, while stubble fire burnt plants that were planted three months ago at Mattran village under special scheme to celebrate 550th Parkash Purb.

A few senior officials said the Nagar Panchayat had given two acres to construct Tehsil Complex, but it was constructed on one acre while another acre was given on annual lease by the Nagar Panchayat authorities.

The complex has offices of Naib Tehsildar, Dirba Sewa Kendra, Fard Kendra and patwaris and all important records related to land and other services are kept here. The fire could have damaged the Tehsil Complex as it is without a outer wall to separate it from the field where stubble was burnt.

“Till morning, there was no fire and the stubble was lying on the Nagar Panchayat land. It was burnt around 11.30 am,” said a local resident.

“Had Revenue Department officials taken required action or launched a campaign, they could have prevented the fire at least on government land, adjacent to their office. It has confirmed that all campaigns of government are only on papers,” said Balwinder Singh, a Dirba resident.

However, Naib Tehsildar Gurbans Singh feigned ignorance and said they would take action after receiving report from field officers.

At Mattran village, stubble fire burnt half-grown trees on Saturday. The trees had been planted to mark the 550th Parkash Purb around the village pond. Villagers have demanded action against the negligent farmers.

“We will take strict action as burning stubble is against norms,” said Jaswinderpal Singh Grewal, Chief Agriculture Officer, Sangrur.
