Nalgonda: The prevailing drought conditions in various Thandas in Chandampet mandal in the district are forcing the farmers to leave their native villages to save their cattle.
Farmers of nine families of Bandameedha Thanda, Circle Thanda of Kambalapally and Guvvalagutta gram panchayats of Chandampet mandal in the district along with their cattle have left their families in search of providing water and feed to their cattle.
Upon the arrival of the herd on the outskirts of Nalgonda, one of the farmers Ramavath Srinu has informed that they have been forced leave their families and roam various places to feed their cattle as there was no grass and drinking water available to animals after water streams in and around their residing Thandas had dried up due to drought.
Expressing their concern over the pitiable condition in their native places, other farmers informed that they were forced to leave the Thanda as there was no grass and water for their domestic animals due to severe drought in Thandas and would have to roam different places for another seven months to save them. They said they would be able to return to their native places in rainy season only if water streams get filled.
