KBP urges govt to build new dams

LAHORE: Kisan Board Pakistan (KBP) has urged the government to build new dams to store rainwater.

Talking to a delegation of farmers here on Sunday, KBP President Sardar Zafar Hussain said that flood had badly damaged standing crops in Punjab, KP, Kashmir and Balochistan.

He said that heavy rains and winds had affected the sugarcane crop and its produce would be 33 percent less.

Rains have also destroyed vegetables besides fodder and KBP would visit all flood-hit areas to monitor relief activities for farmers, he added.

He also demanded the government to contact international forums to stop India from constructing illegal dams.

KBP has also appealed to its member to help flood-hit people.
