The Chief Minister ordered District Collectors and other officials concerned to immediately undertake the survey and assess the damage to crops after Congress State President Dr Chandrabhan, sitting MP Lal Chand Kataria raised the demand for compensation at the function. Mr Gehlot said, The monsoon this year is very good and even if the rains caused damages to the crop, the government would certainly come to the rescue of farmers. Therefore, there should be nothing to worry . Earlier, Dr Chandrabhan, Mr Kataria and other leaders in their speeches had demanded appropriate compensation to farmers for the crop loss.
