Villagers in Sagaing Division say thousands of baskets of paddy seeds have been deliberately destroyed and it is impossible to rehabilitate the agriculture.

A local resident in YaeOo said that it was impossible to rehabilitate the agriculture since military council had destroyed the agricultural implements, seeds and paddy in rural areas where is the agricultural heartlands.

In Sagaing Division, agriculture is being implemented by irrigation. The freshwater islands along the Chindwin River are also sparsely populated for this year’s planting season. The only way to overcome this situation is to win the revolution, said Yin Mar Pin Bo Thurein team.

Locals said that farmers in Sagaing Division can only grow enough to feed their own families for this year’s growing season. In previous years, they used to stockpile food for a year, but this year it has all been destroyed.
