No measure was taken from the district government to protect the crops of the various areas of the district Turbat claimed by a farmer while talking to PakVoices. Saleh Baloch added that government has not supported the farmers in this regard.
Another Farmer Shahdad Baloch said couple of months ago flood water damaged all the crops and now locusts have eaten the seeds of the grass and other crops. He said Government should support the farmers financially.
