Imphal, July 7: The massive flood in valley areas of Manipur did not spared Kakching district either and around 300-400 hectares of cultivable land at Kakching Wairi Awang Loukol, Mantak Loukol and Loushi Loukol are currently immersed in water with no respite in sight as the expanse of submerged land is gradually expanding.
Secretary of Kakching Wairi Awang Loukol Development Committee M Joy said people in Kakching are suffering crop losses due to the present flood like other cultivators in the rest of the valley. Although there were no cases of water overflowing or bursting of the banks along Sengmai river, vast areas of agricultural lands are covered in water and its dimension is gradually increasing with every passing hour, he stated dejectedly.
Kharungpat serves as the depository of water released from various fields in the area but at this point of time the volume of water here has reached such an immense proposition that it can no longer hold it. Subsequently, the flow of water has changed its course and is now running the other way round swamping the fields at Kakching Wairi Awang Loukol, Mantak Loukol and Loushi Loukol worsening the scenario.
With no sight of any immediate improvement in the situation the worries and sufferings of the farmers are keeping on multiplying. Many of them who had sown or transplanted paddy are caught with hands on their heads.  The villagers of this area have drawn the attention of state administration to understand the grim situation and send relief measures.
