Farmers demand electric supply during the day time due to Asiatic Lion’s fear
Divya Bhasker (Briefly Translated from Gujarati)
Electric power for irrigation is provided to farmers of Maliya Hatina Taluka during night time which has increased difficulty for farmers. Lions straying outside forest in to farm lands and nearby village areas is very common. It being nocturnal animal wanders in these farm lands. Hence farmers are scarred to irrigate their farms during night time. Hence they have demanded electric power during day time to avoid going to their farms during night time. The demand is put forward by Farmer’s union before the PGVCL (Power Company) authorities.
Kishore Kotecha’s comment: I do agree with farmer’s demand. Giving electric power during day time will help reduce lion-animal conflict.
