    Chandigarh, Oct. 3. (PTI): Moderate to heavy rains lashed many places of north India since yesterday, damaging ripened paddy crop in many areas of Punjab.

    Ludhiana received 13.4 mm of rain followed by Patiala which got 19.8 mm while light rains lashed Ropar and Amritsar, the Meteorological Department said today. The rainfall in Bathinda, Faridkot, Muktsar, Mansa damaged the ripened paddy crop and hundreds of acres of the crop was submerged and flattened in some areas of the state, hampering the procurement process.

    This is a common situation in past years, where in the same state, there is water shortage leading to damage of crops, and other wise flood damaging the crops. I dont know anything about water issues, but gives me an impression of poor water management. And then, when there are lot of crops, those are not properly valued by government, and those just sit idle in open sky near godowns.
