The Congress on Wednesday demanded compensation for soyabean and cotton crop which suffered damage in the recent rainfall in Boath Assembly constituency area. The demand came following a visit to agricultural fields in Bazarhatnoor mandal by AP Congress Committee ST cell vice president Naresh Jadhav. Dr. Jadhav told reporters that re-sprouting of pre harvest soyabean seeds inside the pods can be seen in about 70 per cent of the crop in Bazarhatnoor alone. He said cotton was also damaged owing to the wilt also in 70 per cent of the crop.

The Congress leader demanded the government to act quickly upon payment of compensation. He said it should be done with the same speed in which it sanctions compensation to farmers in Seemandhra region.
