Imphal, October 20 2021: The Juvenile Athletic Union Club (JAU club) has declared drought in more than 200 hectare (pari)bf paddy fields of Chingnungkok in Lamlai.

A Ranjan, secretary JAU club, said this at a press conference held at Manipur Press Club today and added that the farmers of the said region had started their farming process late as there were scanty rainfall.

He continued that although the rain had shown signs despite being late, the amount of rain was not enough for the paddy fields and the fields had started showing cracks due to inadequate water which has created conditions which are not conducive for harvesting.

There will be no harvest this year and the Government departments concerned should take up necessary steps to ease the woes of the farmers, he added.
