Special Correspondent

CUDDALORE: Over-ripe samba paddy on about one lakh acres in the tail-end delta region of Chidambaram and Kattumannarkoil taluks have not been harvested for want of agricultural labourers. Most of the farm labourers who come for harvest work are from Perambalur district. But this season, their number has dwindled considerably, according to K.V.Kannan, president of Kollidam Keelanai Pasana Vivasayigal Sangam.
