FLOODS THREATEN TO WASH AWAY PADDY FIELDS
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.
