Maharashtra chief minister Eknath Shinde has ordered an assessment of crop losses caused by unseasonal rain and payment of compensation to affected farmers. “Authorities have been directed to conduct the panchnama of the damaged crops and affected farmers should be paid adequate compensation,” Shinde said.

He attended various programs in thane city on monday when he spoke to reporters. “This is the government of farmers and workers. The government will always stand behind these classes,” the chief minister said. Notably, shiv sena (UBT) leader uddhav thackeray on tuesday targeted Shinde for campaigning in poll-bound telangana even though farmers in maharashtra are suffering due to unseasonal rains.

He said preliminary information suggests that nearly 1 lakh hectares of land under cultivation in Marathwada, Vidarbha and north maharashtra regions was affected due to unseasonal rains over the last three to four days. Meanwhile, Shinde said Gadchiroli district and Naxal-hit areas in the region are transforming. “Instead of giving jobs, we want to create job-givers. I am satisfied that balasaheb Thackeray’s dream of maharashtra becoming a job-giver is finally coming to fruition,” he said.

Meanwhile, Union minister Kapil Patil on tuesday urged the chief minister to expedite the assessment of the damage caused to crops by rain and hailstorms in the Bhiwandi lok sabha constituency. In a letter addressed to the chief minister, Patil said crops in Bhiwandi, Shahapur, Murbad and Wada talukas have suffered heavy losses and the paddy thrashing work was also affected. He urged the cm to order relief for the affected farmers and due compensation.
