According to an official spokesperson, the Chief Minister has asked the officials to assess the damage caused to agricultural crops due to floods and excessive rains and give immediate compensation to the farmers whose houses have been damaged.
He insisted that the process should be completed in a week. The government teams involved in the evaluation process have been instructed that not a single eligible farmer should be deprived of compensation. The government will compensate for the loss of all types of agricultural produce.

Organized Kisan Choupal from October 15 to 30
In addition, the Uttar Pradesh BJP has decided to organize ‘Kisan Choupals’ in all 56,000 gram panchayats between October 15 and 30. According to UP BJP Kisan Morcha President Kameshwar Singh, the chaupals will include party MPs, MLAs and state ministers who will apprise the farmers about the various government schemes launched for their welfare.
The Morcha will organize Kisan Choupals in all 98 organizational districts on October 15. After this, the program will be held in 403 assemblies and 27,000 ‘Shakti Kendras’ of the state, comprising five to six booths. It is believed that the party is organizing Kisan Chaupal to reduce the impact of the incident in Lakhimpur Kheri. Eight people were killed in the violence in Lakhimpur. Actually, there are assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh early next year. In such a situation, the party and the government do not want to buy any kind of displeasure.
