Siliguri (West Bengal), April 29 (ANI): Farmers in West Bengal's Siliguri District have reportedly incurred heavy crop-related losses in wake of a sudden hailstorm on Saturday.

Vegetables like cauliflowers, cabbages, lady fingers and cucumber were found lying in water after the natural calamity that lasted for over 30 minutes.

Biswanath Barui, a villager, said he was left with nothing to sell and survive on.

"There was huge hailstorm in the area and it rained heavily. Our crops like cauliflower, cucumber, lady's finger and cabbage were damaged. We were not able to save our crops and we have nothing to sell and survive on," said Barui.

Over 1000 acres of farmland was destroyed by the hailstorm.

Another villager, Bidhan Bagchi, said he was left with no money to run his household and repay his loans.

Farmers have appealed to the government to assess the damage and compensate them for their unexpected losses. (ANI)
