Hearing about the condition of the poor helpless farmer, the boys of Union Chhatra League unit cut the ripe paddy of his land.

The ripe paddies were about to get destroyed in the storm. If the boys had not cut the paddy, the paddy would have fallen on the land in any storm, rain or hailstorm at any time”, he added. The farmer was very to have the paddies harvested by the Chhatra League activists.
