India - CPM MPs assess crop loss due to whitefly

A delegation of CPM MPs Elamaram Kareem, KK Raghesh, Bikash Ranjan Bhattacharya and Dr Vijoo Krishnan are on a visit to villages in Jind, Hisar and Rohtak to take stock of losses due to whitefly.

The MPs said huge losses were suffered by cotton farmers and the PMFBY had failed as no compensation had been paid to them.

The MPs demanded a thorough survey and proper compensation to the farmers.

They visited farmers protesting against the farm Bills which were passed by Parliament recently in Jind, Uchana, Barwala, Adampur, Hisar and Mewat.
