Haryana Chief Minister, Manohar Lal Khattar said on Tuesday that he has already instructed the officials to conduct a special ‘girdawari’ (survey) in an effort to farmers’ concerns over crop losses due to continuous rain.

During an event in Panchkula, he said that the farmers will receive full compensation for their losses.

The main opposition party Congress has demanded the BJP-JJP coalition government in the state to award compensation to the farmers as soon as possible.

Additionally, He has asked the government to take action to drain rainwater that has accumulated in the fields as soon as possible.

The chief minister responded to a question on the recent protests by Arhtiyas or commission agents, that they have called off the rallies while some of their demands have been accepted.

The minister further said that the state government has made further demands to the central government, such as increasing their commission.

The Arhtiyas in the state had gone on strike, saying that they opposed the government's decision to make selling of basmati varieties of paddy on the National Agriculture Market (e-NAM portal).

Khattar thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the Centre's announcement to name the Chandigarh airport after freedom fighter Bhagat Singh.

He said, "It will be a very auspicious thing that on the birth anniversary of Shaheed Bhagat Singh on September 28, the airport is being officially named after him."

Khattar said that the opposition parties "don't stand a chance" of defeating the BJP in a unified front in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
