Karnal (Haryana) [India], Sept. 25 (ANI): The continuous heavy downpour in Haryana and other neighbouring states has caused extensive damage to standing and harvested paddy and other crops in Karnal district.
The paddy crop, which is either ready for harvest or has been harvested already, are now submerged in water due to heavy rains in the region since last three days.
While the standing crop fell to the ground and is entirely submerged in water, the harvested stack is submerged posing a threat of paddy getting wasted.
