Maharashtra farmers affected by flood damage may get compensation soon


Mumbai: Maharashtra government has hinted of providing compensation to the farmers for the losses due to recent floods. The government has completed the assessment of the crop loss occurred due to the heavy rainfall and floods in the state.

Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has stated that the survey of the crop damage has been almost complete and the officials are busy in ascertaining the compensation amount. He toured the Osmanabad district and visited the flood-affected villages on Wednesday.

The districts of Sangli, Solapur and Satara of Western Maharashtra and Latur, Beed and Osmanabad from central Maharashtra received heavy downpour last week.

According to the news report published in Hindustan Times, “My nature is to carry out work properly. To start something with much show and then get stuck in between is of no use. Similarly, announcing something which I cannot do, is also useless. While I am speaking to you, the work on finalising compensation is on in Mumbai. Day after its Dussehra, then Diwali will follow, in the time of festivals I will not allow my people to have tears in their eyes.”
