  • Cyclone and subsequent floods

    Cyclone and subsequent floods have dealt a big blow to the farmers of the state. Paddy, maize, groundnut, vegetables and horticultural crops are destroyed in almost 18 districts. Kewda farmers of Ganjam and coconut farmers of Puri have suffered heavy losses. Fishermen across the coastal districts lost their assets. It would take years for these farmers to rebuild their lives and livelihood. The diversified and robust rural economy of the state faces a crisis. Migration and NREGA are no solution to this. A comprehensive plan for reviving the farm sector is needed.
