Ranchi: The MLAs of the Congress party led by their legislature wing leader Alamgir Aalam protested outside the assembly during the Monsoon Session demanding that the state be declared drought-hit.

The Congress MLAs who carried ply cards containing slogans related to declaring the state drought-hit, provide 24 hours of power, release the payment for crop insurance scheme and end the harassment of Christians also indulged in slogan shouting in favour of their demands.

Later Mr Aalam said that the state was staring a drought but despite that, the state government has not taken any steps to solve the problems of the farmers. He said that the Congress party had raised the issue earlier also and will continue to do the same inside the assembly also.

Mr Aalam said that despite claims of the government even the Pradhanmantri  Kissan Samman Nidhi Yojana and Mukhyamantri Krishi Aashirwad Yojana have not proved beneficial for the farmers. He also demanded that the state government for crop insurance scheme and provide 24-hour power supply in the state.
