Natural calamities and disasters have hurt the farmers & the agricultural sector the most. A possibility for food-scarcity & economical unbalance of this market had emerged. Though, governments are doing their best and took great importing initiations to sort out the, food-supply vs demand issue. Now, it is high time, the farmers and victim families of recent natural disasters, get rehabilitated.

Some experts, such as DU Prof. Abu Ahmed complains, men’s radical actions are equally responsible for multiplying the severity of these natural calamities. Unplanned river dams, cutting hills, sawing down forests & unsupervised ill-effects of industries. All are adding up to the recent situations, and this year was just a warning.

Former Adviser of Caretaker Government, Mirza Azizul Islam suggested, since Bangladesh is a rural-populous country and most depend on farming. These people are the prime victims. Therefore, the government should do everything for their betterment at first.

Government authorities claim to have already starting all their welfare-campaigns for the calamity victims. Bangladesh Krishi Bank Chairman Ismail informed that, all banks have already been instructed to distribute farmer-loans without any interests. Just Krishi Bank alone aims to loan 10,000 crores taka this year. Total milestone may reach up to 20,000 crores taka.
