July 19, 2021

SUKKUR: As many as eight revenue collectors (Patwaris) were suspended over charges of providing false data or involved in data fudging regarding paddy cultivation.

Reports said there was a complete ban on the cultivation of paddy crop in Khairpur, while the revenue collectors (Patwaris) had furnished a negative report about the cultivation of paddy rice in Khairpur. When the deputy commissioner Khairpur Raja Tariq Chandio had made a surprise visit, he found rice cultivation in Faiz Gunj Taluka, Thari Mirwah, Khairpur and other areas. The DC had suspended eight revenue collectors and directed the staff, especially Mukhtiyarkars, to eliminate the cultivated rice crop from their jurisdictions.
