Farmers near Indo-Pak border highlight issues

Tarn Taran, February 22

Famers of the Kisan Union of the border area have written a letter written to the IG (Border) BSF regarding the problems faced by farmers having their land along the Indo-Pak border.

Surjit Singh Bhura, vice-president of the union, said the organisation, in a letter to the IG, highlighted the issue of uncertainty regarding opening of gates installed at the entry points near the fencing. They said because of this, farmers had to take a long route to go to their fields. He said sometimes the gates were not opened in time due to which farmers had to face inconvenience while going to their fields for agriculture works. He also said recently, a farmer Jaspal Singh of Kals village was injured seriously in the attack by a wild life pig when he had gone to his fields across the fencing. He said the damage of the crops by the stray animals had become a common thing. — OC
