The Indian National Lok Dal MP from Hisar, Dushyant Chautala has asked the state BJP government to declare the entire Haryana as drought-hit.

Dushyant, in a statement, said it was an irony that the state government had not done anything to compensate farmers of five districts, which the state government had declared drought-hit about four months ago.

Seeking intervention of the Centre, he said not only the farmers of the five districts but all the entire state should be compensated because of the drought-like situation. He also flayed the Centre for hiking VAT (value-added tax) on diesel in Haryana.
