Muktsar (Punjab), Feb 26: Seepage water in canals in Punjab's Muktsar district has caused water logging in fields.
Water logged fields and houses in the area have developed crack.
The fields, which used to yield crops, are now serving as habitat for wild ducks. The situation has forced the farmers to abandon farming and work as daily wage laborers.
"The farmers who were owners of 40 acres farmlands are now forced to work as daily wage laborers. They have no other alternative as their fields have been destroyed by waterlogging," said Hajoor Singh, a farmer.
