  • Crops in haor areas in peril, again!

    In the last two years, farmers in haor areas had lost their boro crops to flash floods caused by heavy rain, followed up by onrush of water from the upstream. This year, water has again entered the paddy fields in 88 villages of Sunamganj's Tahirpur and Dhamapasha upazilas after part of the Naotana dyke along the Tanguar Haor had allegedly been cut by some local fishermen.
