FLOODS THREATEN TO WASH AWAY PADDY FIELDS

Business Bhutan - - Money -

Farm­ers of Pel­rithang Kha­toed and Pel­rithang Khamoed are los­ing their paddy fields to the swollen Dowla stream. The stream dis­ap­pears with­out a trace dur­ing the dry sea­son but reap­pears in full force dur­ing the mon­soon, un­leash­ing de­struc­tion along its banks.

The stream has so far washed away or dam­aged al­most 25 acres of paddy fields in the area. The can­di­dates of both DNT and DPT have said they will do ev­ery­thing to help pro­tect the lives, agri­cul­tural land and prop­er­ties of the peo­ple of Pel­rithang Kha­toed and Pel­rithang Khamoed from the floods.
