Karimnagar:Thousands of quintals of paddy soaked with sudden rainfall at Yadadri Bhuvanagiri since Monday night. Most of the farmers sent their paddy to nearby market yards and IKP Centres across the district. Most of IKP and market yards do not have sheds to store the paddy. With the sudden rains, about 3,000 quintals of paddy belonging to 90 farmers drowned in rainwater at IKP Centre at Munipampula village in Ramannapeta mandal. Farmers said, “We sent paddy to Munipampula IKP Centre last evening. Lack of lighting and with non availability of workers, we stored the paddy at IKP Centre. But with the rain most of the paddy drowned in water. Some paddy washed away on road and drainage canal in the village.” Farmers staged dharna before IKP Centre demanding the government to purchase paddy for MSP and compensation to washed out paddy.
