Lack of irrigation hits farmers

PARASI: Farmers in Nawalparasi are not getting enough water for irrigation. As per the Gandak Agreement, India is supposed to release 18 cusec water in the western Gandak canal that provides irrigation to the Nepali side. Lack of water has deprived around 1,300 hectares of land in Paklihawa, Kudiya, Narsahi, Pratappur and Guthi Prasauni VDCs of irrigation.
