Nabarangpur: In a bid to help the corn farmers of Bangali village here, Umerkote's BJP MLA Nityananda Gond assisted them in spraying pesticide on their fields on Saturday morning.

The local farmers had been complaining about the pests in their field and produce over the last few months. To hear their grievances, Gond visited them on Saturday and looked at the crop.

He was disappointed on seeing the large number of insects and immediately got to work. He picked by a tank and helped the farmers in spraying pesticides. Later, he also explained the farmers how to avail government schemes in procuring insecticides at subsidised rates that would not harm the crops.

Gond's move was appreciated by locals farmers of the area.
