    Agriculture crops have been damaged in Telangana due to unseasonal rains and hailstorms over the last two days. The Chief Minister of Telangana, K. Chandrasekhar Rao, has directed officials to assess the damage caused to crops. He asked the Chief Secretary to speak with District Collectors and get detailed reports on crop damages. This is the second time this summer that untimely rains and hailstorms have damaged crops in parts of Telangana.

    Minister for Civil Supplies, Gangula Kamalar, visited a few areas in Karimnagar district and inspected fields damaged by unseasonal rains. He assured farmers that the Telangana government will provide 100 per cent compensation and advised them not to lose heart. Kamalakar also assured the affected farmers that the government will procure the paddy soaked in rains.

    Farmers in Jangaon district staged a protest on a highway demanding payment of compensation for the crop damage due to unseasonal rains. Unseasonal rains and hailstorms had damaged crops over 2.28 lakh acres in various parts of the state last month. The chief minister had then announced a compensation of Rs 10,000 per acre. However, after a survey, the agriculture department decided to pay compensation only in respect of 1.51 lakh acres. Officials said the money will be deposited in the bank accounts of 1,30,988 farmers.

    The KCR government is working to assess the damage caused to crops due to unseasonal rains across the state. The government will provide compensation and procure paddy soaked in rains. Farmers affected by crop damage are urged to report their losses to their District Collectors.
