Dejected by failure of irrigation department functioning under the administrative jurisdiction of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council in irrigating a small patch of agricultural land, villagers of Dakhin Dighalpar, Gorokhiya Pukhuri, Harizon Basti, Chauhan Basti, Mahalisheet etc., under Howraghat development block of Phuloni circle constructed about 3kms long irrigation canal from Dighalipani river to their cultivation areas.
The villagers said it had appealed the department to construct the very cannel as it was the need of the hour. However it said the departmental pundits failed to address the needs of the farmers.
The community initiative has served the cultivators their immediate need but, they felt that a more permanent cannel would help them to serve multi purpose requirement.
The villagers of Dakhin Dighalpar, Gorokhiya Pukhuri, Harizon Basti, Chauhan Basti, Mahalisheet villages appealed the executive members of KAAC to visit the site and take initiative for building a permanent infrastructure for rural irrigation in the area.
It may be mentioned the areas have one of the best rice and sugarcane producing belt of Karbi Anglong district.
Speaking on condition of unanimity, a retired government officer expressed disappointment on the shallow promises of the government of rural development, especially in agriculture sector.
He said, “The visionless leaders are generally guided by the prototype bureaucrats and administrators, who generally lack sense of belonging, resulting into growth of corruption and un-planned growth”.
