New Delhi: The flood caused major damage to farmers due to the rising water level in the Yamuna. These farmers mainly include 200 small and marginal farmers. About 40 lakh crops have been damaged. The farmers say that they do not understand what to do now or how to deal with the situation. In this case, these poor and helpless farmers say that this crop was their only source of income and it is impossible for them to recover from the loss. Chandrawati, 50, says she has five young girls.
They had to leave their homes on Monday night to seek shelter in the camp in view of the danger of rising water levels. "We have been cultivating vegetables in Yamuna Khadar area for decades. My husband used to do the same. Since his demise in 2004, I have been farming with my five daughters. Now, we are struggling to save it. "The authorities informed us about the rise in water levels.
We lost Rs.25,000 and nobody is talking about it. It was the only source of our income. More than 10,000 people had taken shelter in the Nigambodh emanator ghat from low lying areas before the river water came above the danger mark. The water level in the Yamuna river has reached above the danger mark. In Haryana, 8.28 lakh cusecs of water have been released from the Hamanikund barrage in Yamunanagar.
