Corona spreading its vicious wings..intensifying criticism from all ends including the Governor of the state and national media throwing the state into bad light over less testing. Amidst the above corona chaos, heavy rains threw a new challenge to the Telangana government.
According to the statistics, the state has suffered a loss of nearly Rs 1,000 crore due to heavy rains battering the state in the last six days. While the heavy rains have left northern and eastern parts of the state, especially Warangal, agriculture was estimated to be the worst-hit sector followed by infrastructure.
Reports claimed that that the crop damage occurred in more than 3 lakh acres while paddy and cotton topped the list. It was learnt that the farmers will have to shell out money again to buy seeds, fertilizers and other required crop material to take up farming again in the season.
While 12 out of Telangana’s 33 districts got excess rains, the monsoon remained deficient in some parts with variation ranging from 142 per cent above average to 27 per cent below normal.
This flood situation has come as a new challenge for the government while Telangana Minister of Municipal Administration and Urban Development KT Rama Rao on Tuesday conducted an aerial survey to supervise the relief measures.
