Lok Raj Sangathan submitted a petition on 13th September 2018 to the Additional District Collector of Nohar demanding that theft of irrigation water from Amarsingh, NTR and DPN tributaries.
The petition pointed out that water theft has been going on for a long time in the Amarsingh branch and NTR and DPN tributaries. This is adversely affecting the crops of the farmers. In spite of repeated complaints the Water Resources department and the district administration have not been able to retrain the culprits. The farmers at the tail end are continuously losing their turn to irrigate their fields. The petition has warned that if the problem was not resolved speedily, then the farmers will be forced to start agitation.
All India Vice President of Lok Raj Sangathan, Hanuman Prasad Sharma, Om Sangar, Palaram Bhambhu, Om Sahu, Krishna Nokhawal, Maniram Lashekar, Dataram, Hetaram and others were present for submitting the petition.
