Maharashtra CM assures help to farmers in hailstorm-hit areas

Chavan’s statement comes in the wake of reports that several farmers have committed suicide in the hailstorm affected districts. ‘As you all know Lok Sabha elections have been declared and the Model Code of Conduct has been enforced. Considering the magnitude of devastation, the government is trying its best to provide maximum relief to the affected farmers,’ Chavan said.

‘My cabinet colleagues and I have toured the affected districts and discussed the compensation to be given at informal cabinet meetings. The state government has demanded a financial package of Rs 5,000 crore from the Centre and also apprised the Election Commission of India about the damage caused,’ Chavan said.
