94 0

Maharashtra is set to witness another round of farmers' protests as 25000 farmers have started a long march from Nashik and will reach Mumbai on Monday. The long march is being organised under the banner of All India Kisan Sabha and the protestors will cross the distance from Nashik to Mumbai by foot.

The farmers have staged the protest to ensure exact support price for crops, increase compensation, implement forest rights, hike agricultural pension, implement M S Swaminathan report at the earliest and many more such demands.

The farmers have demanded that all their requirements should be considered and put into action before the end of March. Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had announced a debt support scheme of Rs 34000 when the farmers began their intense protests earlier. But the agricultural organisations allege that the government failed to deliver the assurances.

According to the Crime Records Bureau, 60000 farmers have ended their life from 1995 to 2013 and that has urged organisations to protest against the government and ensure the well-being of the farmers.
