A FARMER in Johol, Negri Sembilan, lost 78 goats in a recent flood in the area, Makkal Osai reported.

Ramasamy Letchumanan, who operates the farm in Kepis, said his farm was badly affected in the Nov 19 flood, which also destroyed most of his personal belongings.

“My family depended on the farm for income and are now facing severe financial difficulties because of the losses, ” he said.

They are hoping that the state government will provide some financial assistance for them to restart their business.

Seremban Jaya state assemblyman P. Guna, who met with the farmer at his farm, said he will discuss the matter with the authorities

Guna highlighted the plight of Chandran Thirumoorthi, another farmer in Kampung Bukit Chedang, who lost all his herd dogs in the flood.

The state will look at ways to help all those affected, Guna said.
