Haryana Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal has directed the officers concerned to ensure drainage of water from the waterlogged areas at the earliest so that farmers can sow the next crop in time.
While presiding over a review meeting held through video conferencing here today, the Chief Minister directed the Deputy Commissioners to complete this work within the stipulated time frame.
The Chief Minister also directed the Deputy Commissioners to ensure adequate availability of manure too. Deputy Chief Minister Sh. Dushyant Chautala and Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare Minister, Sh. J.P. Dalal were also present in the meeting.
The Chief Minister said that if required, adequate arrangements should be made for more pumps so that water could be drained from the fields in time. After drainage, the water should be used for recharging purposes instead of wasting it in the drain, this will also improve the water level, said the Chief Minister.
Sh. Manohar Lal directed the Deputy Commissioners to hold review meetings of departments, corporations, societies and committees regularly within the stipulated time period. He further directed them to send daily reports after doing physical verification of the incidents of stubble burning.
