districts to assess the condition caused by the floods. He said that water had penetrated several villages in the Jakhal, Bhuna, Ratia, Fatehabad, and Sirsa blocks, as well as those near Otu Lake. The flow of water in the Ghaggar River is still strong. Water will take some time to recede in some regions.
The Chief Minister further stated that 12 districts in Haryana have been declared flood-affected, with water receding in 10 of them. Pumping is used to retrieve water where it has not yet emerged.
He said that people have died due to floods; the government will give compensation to those families. Apart from this, in the fields where re-sowing can be done, the farmers can sow again and in those where re-sowing cannot be done, they will be compensated for their losses.
“The state government will start giving compensation from the coming week to those whose houses have been damaged or partially damaged. Besides this, compensation will also be given to those livestock owners who have lost their animals due to floods,” said Sh. Manohar Lal.
