Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao directed the officials concerned to remain on high alert as the state was experiencing widespread rainfall accompanied by thunder and hailstorms.
The CM spoke to Chief Secretary S K Joshi on the sudden change in the weather and its impact on the crops in the state, and asked for estimates of the crop losses due to the unseasonal rains and storms.
Since the government was ready to give input subsidy to the farmers who suffered losses, reports should be prepared and sent to the government forthwith, he said.
Responding to the CM's instructions, the Chief Secretary spoke to all the District Collectors over the phone and asked them to prepare reports on crop losses immediately.
He also deputed teams of officials to visit the affected places to assess the crop damage.
