Farmers’ bandh hits life in Kuchinda

Thursday, 12 September 2019 | PNS | SAMBALPUR

A bandh call given by farmers of Kuchinda and the common people in Kuchinda sub-division on Wednesday demanding crop insurance was successful.

The farmers said they should get crop insurance money from the companies within 45 days of declaration of the area as drought-affected but yet have not been for the years 2017 and 2018.

At the same time, the input subsidy declared by the State Government is also unavailable to them, they further rued.

Due to the bandh, normal life got paralysed in Bamra, Jamankira and Kuchinda blocks of the sub-division.

 All schools and colleges, Government and private offices, banks and commercial organisations remained shut. Vehicles also remained off the roads.

Police said forces were deployed in adequate numbers to avert any untoward situation. But the bandh was totally peaceful.

Different political parties also came forward to support the bandh and demanded that the State Government and insurance companies take steps to provide crop insurance money.
