Water Tank Ruptures in Andhra Pradesh, Washes Away Crops
Standing paddy fields and chili crops got washed away in the Penchikalapadu village of Andhra Pradesh, after a water tank ruptured September 26. According to Srinu, a farmer, the same incident took place last month as well, resulting in huge losses. “It is the fault of the engineers who did not rebuild the bund properly after last incident. We request the government to compensate us for our losses," Srinu said.
