Ahmedgarh, September 25
The Deputy Commissioner (DC), Malerkotla, Amrit Kaur Gill, called upon farmers to follow teachings of the Sikh Gurus in agricultural chores.
While interacting with farmers of Jhuner, Kuthala, Mithewal and Dasaundha Singh Wala village during personal contact programme on sensitisation of paddy growers about causes and consequences of stubble burning today, the DC said, “When our Gurus have preached to treat air as their embodiment, why should we pollute it by burning agricultural waste.”
The DC appreciated that office-bearers and activists of social and religious organisations had vowed to shun the practise. She advised Agricultural Development Officer Dr Kulbir Singh to ensure that no farmer or cooperative society faced harassment in procurement of equipment required for alternative disposal of agricultural waste. — OC
