Dr. Dinesh Chandra had arrived in Bahraich to take stock of law and peace and order and covid vaccination work. Saw a farmer burning stubble in the field. The DM immediately stopped his car and after reaching the middle of the field, he himself started extinguishing the burning straw along with everyone.
The farmer was not aware of the ban
After the stubble was extinguished, the DM of the district asked why are you burning the stubble. Burning stubble in the fields is a crime by law. For this you can be punished with fine. On this the farmer told the DM that he was not aware about not burning the stubble. The villagers present on this occasion also told that Farmer Manohar is very poor. If he had known, he would not have done so.
Farmers resolved not to burn stubble
The DM made the villagers aware about not burning the stubble. Told that by increasing the fertility of the land from stubble, income can also be increased. A pledge was also taken by all the farmers present on the occasion not to burn stubble in future.
