Fresh swarms of locusts reach Rajasthan; situation likely to worsen
Locust swarms may continue arriving for four more months, but they may not lead to a food crisis, believe officials
NEW DELHI : Fresh swarms of desert locusts continued to enter Rajasthan from across the border, as the worst locust attack on India in recent years raised concerns over its impact on crops. The swarms were first noticed in parts of the border districts of Suratgarh and Jaisalmer, and officials sprang into action to prevent their spread. But, the threat has been exacerbated by the breeding of more locusts in Pakistan.
