In Srimangal of Moulvibazar, about 400 kera of boro paddy seedbeds were destroyed due to lack of water. Farmers are facing losses due to the loss of seed beds.

The affected farmers have written complaints to Srimangal Upazila Parishad Chairman, Upazila Nirbahi Officer, Agriculture Officer and Ashidron Union Parishad Chairman for redressal.

Several farmers affected by the loss of seed beds said that the management committee called Fatki Ashidron Irrigation Scheme was supposed to give water in the current Boro season. According to Iqbal Mia, Roop Mia and Rubel Mia of the project management committee, the farmers sowed the seeds at the end of the month of Agrahayan. In the middle of Paush month, the land should be watered for plowing. Now the sapling is almost two months old. As the saplings are too old, they are unfit for planting in the land. The affected farmers are mentally broken as the paddy seedlings dry and turn yellow and perish in the seed bed. Farmer of Ashidron village. Mainul Islam Babu said that during the current boro season, the water committee came to his house for three days and held a meeting and said that they promised to provide water for boro paddy planting.

Furuk, a farmer of the same village, said, “I am buying a bunch of rice seeds for 3,200 taka.” I could not plant rice seedlings in the land after spending 2000 taka for cutting the land. As the saplings are old, now the saplings are turning yellow and dying.
