Addressing the protesters, including farmers, outside the collectorate, Mahanagar president of RLD Ramanand Goel criticized the SP government in the state for its policies concerning farmers.
He alleged payments to sugarcane farmers to the tune of crores of rupees have been delayed by many sugar mills of Uttar Pradesh.
Lack of funds with farmers is another hindrance in the cultivation, Goel said, adding that erratic power and insufficient water supply were multiplying the woes of the cultivators.
These issues will further cast a negative impact on sugarcane and wheat production in Uttar Pradesh, he said.
"Farmers are feeding the nation, but they are not getting fair price for their crops," he said.
