Chuadanga DC joins farmers in harvesting paddy

UNB, Chuadanga

In a rare move, Deputy Commissioner of the district Gopal Chandra Das along with other government officials joined poor farmers in harvesting their paddy from the field in Jibannagar upazila yesterday.

With the slogan ‘Farmers are not alone, we are beside them’, the DC joined the paddy harvesting activities in the morning.

Together with additional deputy commissioner (Revenue) Khandaker Farhad Ahmed and additional deputy commissioner (General) Mohammad Yahiya Khan, the DC started harvesting paddy on 15 kathas of land of Jebun Nesa at Peyaratola village. As the news spread around, upazila parishad chairman Haji Hafizur Rahman, upazila nirbahi officer Md Sirajul Islam, upazila parishad vice-chairman Abdus Salam Esha, female vice-chairman Ayesha Sultana Lucky, upazila agriculture officer Sharmin Akhter, local union parishad Chairman Sohrab Hossain Khan and scout members also went to the field and joined the paddy harvesting.

Jebun Nesa said she could not hire labourers for harvesting paddy from her land for lack of money. “When I along with my son Shah Alam started harvesting paddy in the morning, the DC along with the officials joined us.”

After the harvesting work, the DC started procuring paddy directly from farmers visiting their houses.

A farmer has to pay around Tk 800 to a labourer amid low price of paddy, making the situation worse for them.
