MIRPURKHAS: Chairman Farmers Organization Council (FOC) Sindh Javed Ahmed Junejo said agriculture of district Mirpurkhas has been destroyed during recent flood while farmers suffered Rs 40billion losses on this account.

This he said, while presiding over a meeting of FOC here on Saturday.

He further said that cotton crop over 105000 acres was destroyed. As the farmers had spent on an average Rs 30000 per acre the total amount is worked out at Rs 31billion.
He said that similarly growers had spent millions of rupees on cultivation of banana, sugarcane, onion, and tomato crops etc. in the district, which were also washed away.

On the other hand, he said that owing to inundation of farmlands and villages, farmers were staying along roads and relief camps.

He demanded of the government to drain out the stagnant rainwater from the villages and farms otherwise wheat crop could not be cultivated.

He also demanded of the government to immediately waive off agriculture loan of the growers and provide agriculture loan without interest. (APP)
