    Several areas in the erstwhile Warangal district have been affected by untimely rains and hailstorm, causing damage to standing crops and leaving farmers in distress. The crops, especially maize and chilli, have been hit hard by the light to moderate rains in the last 24 hours. Mango growers are also expected to face difficulties due to the rains, which may cause damage to the fruit. The Narsampet region of Warangal district, which suffered heavy crop loss in January last year, has once again been severely affected by the hailstorm and rain, damaging standing crops of maize, paddy, and chilli.

    Several mandals in Mahabubabad district, including Dornakal, Thorrur, Danthalapally, and Narsimhulapeta, have reported damage to standing crops of maize, paddy, and chilli, as well as harvested chilli on kallalu (platforms). Additionally, farmers in Kodakandla mandal of Jangaon district have also suffered significant crop damage.

    Minister for Panchayat Raj and Rural Development Errabelli Dayakar Rao visited several areas in the Palakurthi constituency where crop damage was immense. He spoke with farmers in Thorrur, Pedda Vangara, Kodakandla, and Devaruppula mandals to instill confidence that the government would help them. The Chief Minister has directed the Agriculture and Revenue departments to assess the extent of crop loss in the State.

    During his inspection, Minister Errabelli noticed damage to chilli, maize, and some vegetable crops. He assured farmers that the government would provide financial assistance after the enumeration of crop loss was estimated. Additionally, he promised to provide financial assistance of Rs 3 lakh to people whose houses collapsed due to rains. The officials have estimated crop loss in over 6,500 acres spread across 67 villages in nine mandals of Jangaon district and over 17,400 acres in Mahabubabad district. The minister was accompanied by Mahabubabad District Collector K Shashanka and other officials.
