Gadchiroli Dec. 3 (District Correspondent) Mr. Subhash Dhote, senior Congress leader and MLA from Rajura toured the untimely rain affected areas of the district recently and inspected the crop loss caused due to the farmers. During this tour, he visited many villages including Ankhoda, Yenapur, Adyal in Chamorshi taluka and interacted with the farmers to learn about their problems.
Wild elephants and man-eating tigers have been running rampant in the district for the past few days, and due to unseasonal rains, there has been a lot of damage to agriculture in the district. Mr. Dhote while speaking to the affected farmers said that during the upcoming winter session of the Maharashtra legislature, all the MLAs of the Congress Party will raise the problems of Gadchiroli district in the floor of the house and will attract the attention of the government. The MLAs and the Congress party will do their best to get proper compensation for the loss of the farmers, he said.
Earlier Mr. Dhote addressed the press conference at the Circuit house here and demanded early financial assistance to the farmers whose crops have been damaged due to untimely rains. The state government has been neglecting the farmers and the District Incharge Minister has no time to look into the matter, he alleged. The district Incharge minister Devendra Fadnavis should be replaced with another minister in the state cabinet because Mr. Fadnavis is unable to spare time for the district because of his other responsibilities, Dhote also demanded.
