It is time for the farmers to be devastated as the return rains in the state have destroyed their standing crops. But Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had promised to help these farmers before Diwali. The government has fulfilled this promise and the money will start accumulating in the accounts of the affected farmers from Monday, Relief and Rehabilitation Minister Vijay Vadettiwar said on Thursday. This will bring relief to many farmers.
The return rains in the state caused a huge downpour. Heavy rains caused severe damage to agriculture in many areas. After a year of hard work and perspiration, the hard work of the farmers has literally gone to waste. The crop that was harvested was flattened. Therefore, Baliraja became distraught.

The state government had then announced relief to farmers affected by the heavy rains. Finally, a decision has been taken in this regard and the government has decided to help the farmers before Diwali. State Minister for Relief and Rehabilitation Vijay Vadettiwar informed this.
After the state cabinet meeting, Vijay Vadettiwar informed about the assistance being given to the farmers. The state government is fulfilling its promise to help farmers before Diwali. A letter has also been issued to the Election Commission regarding the distribution of aid. Permission has been obtained from the Election Commission. Therefore, the money will be deposited in the farmers ‘accounts from Monday,’ said Vadettiwar.
