Intense cold weather accompanied with hailstorms have destroyed the crops in the Damoh region of Madhya Pradesh. There have been adverse weather conditions for the past one week. 

The Bundelkhand region produces crops like tomato, peas and brinjal on large scale and transports these crops to other states. 

Damoh has been seeing frost for about a week and hailstones have rained down on crops. "I have suffered a loss of Rs 1.5 lakhs. What do we eat now? The government should give us compensation," said a farmer. 

"I have got a survey done through Patwari but no loss of crops has been reported till now. If we found something like this, we will do the survey again," Sangeeta Waghmare, the tehsildar of Damoh said. 

Though the loan waiver scheme has been announced by the Kamal Nath government in MP, the failed crop has disturbed the farmers and they want the government to help them in some way.
