The District Disaster Management Committee, Banke has recommended to the federal and provincial governments to declare Narainapur Rural Municipality of Banke as a crisis zone.

Acting on a request of Narainapur Rural Municipality to draw the local administration's attention to only 15 percent of paddy plantation to this date, the disaster management committee furnished the recommendation to the federal and provincial governments to provide relief to the farmers, shared Narainapur Chairperson Istiak Ahmad Shah.

Chief District Officer of Banke Surya Bahadur Khatry informed that the committee had recommended the arrangement of adequate irrigation, alternative crop management, and relief distribution.

Earlier, a team also comprising agro-scientists had recommended cultivating pod-bearing corn farming in the area.

It may be noted that Narainapur rural municipality had declared its area as dry land on its own. A meeting of the rural municipality had come up with the declaration on the premises that there was no arrangement for adequate irrigation and limited paddy plantation in the area due to a long spell of drought. ---
