Jind: Ahead of Diwali festival, people were freed from air pollution. Friday morning’s rain completely washed away the smog, causing Jind’s AQI to drop from 430 to 280. This relieved people from air pollution. The paddy fields stored in the markets became wet, causing problems for the farmers. There was significant relief in air pollution due to 4 mm of rain and strong winds in Jind block. The AQI was 430 on Thursday while it fell to 280 on Friday.
People received significant relief from air pollution caused by rain and strong winds. In the last ten days, air pollution had increased so much that people were even having problems breathing. Air pollution continued to improve throughout the day. Air pollution is expected to continue to improve at night. 4mm rainfall was recorded in Jind and 1mm rainfall was recorded in Narwana. There was drizzle in other parts of the district. After the drizzle, the weather turned slightly colder, creating muddy conditions in rural areas. In addition, people faced a lot of problems in commuting from many places where the roads were broken. Due to drizzle and rain, paddy harvest and wheat sowing were stopped in the district. Wheat sowing is currently in full swing where rice has been harvested. Now this work has been stopped due to rain and drizzle. The rice harvest was also stopped.
Farmers’ wet cultures
Farmers taking their crops to market also covered them with tarpaulins to protect their crops from wet conditions. Farmers Ramdutt Sharma, Jitendra Sheokand and Rajesh Kumar, residents of Uchana, said they were having difficulty breathing and had also started coughing due to increasing pollution in the last few days. It became increasingly difficult to leave the house. When the weather clears up after the drizzle, pollution levels have also decreased. Farmers also covered their cotton and rice fields with tarpaulins at the market. Light rain began in various villages in the Aleva region around 4:30 a.m. on Friday and continued at times until the evening.
Procurement of rice plants from the market has also been stopped
Due to the change in weather due to rain, farmers have stopped harvesting rice using combine harvesters. At the same time, due to the humidity after the rain, the work of buyers in the grain market to buy rice was also stopped. In addition, the farmers placed tarpaulins etc. on the heaps to protect the rice crops offered for sale in the grain market from moisture. Farmers from different villages, Surjamal, Ramjuari, Rajesh, Balwan, Karambir, Satpal, Jagmal, Kala Ram and Shamsher, reported that the light rain started around 4.30 am and continued intermittently till the evening.
