Deogarh: Demanding the drought-hit tag for the entire Deogarh district, the Congress has called a bandh in the district on November 2.
Deogarh district Congress chief Sema Hembram had informed about it in a press conference on Wednesday.
“As the farming sector in the district has been badly affected due to scanty rainfall, the government should declare the district as drought-hit”, Hembram claimed.
The government should give compensation of Rs 20,000 per acre of land in addition with providing irrigation facilities for betterment of the famers’ community.
If the government fails to do so then we will intensify the agitation in the coming days, Hembram cautioned.
