Tharad Ahmedabad Expressway Latest Updates

Farmers have protested in Banaskantha demanding to stop the survey work of the Tharad-Ahmedabad Expressway. Farmers of many villages of Jasali, Sardarpura, and Deodar taluka are opposing the survey. Farmers have submitted a petition to the provincial government demanding the exclusion of the internal survey from the Bharatmala project.

Farmers say that the government has started the survey of crops standing in the fields without any information. Which has caused huge losses to the farmers. Farmers say that despite repeated proposals to stop the survey of standing crops, no one is ready to listen.

Not only this, the sequence of cracks in the canal continues in the border area of Banaskantha district. Today water overflowed near Bhorol village in the Medhala Minor Canal of the Bhorol Distributor Canal and went into the fields around the canal. However, farmers are not getting benefits due to canal water entering the ready crops (like cumin, raida, and castor).

Farmers say that today more water comes out of the canal than every day. Even after the gap fell, the crops standing in the fields were filled with water for more than three hours.
