The RLD's western UP in-charge Rajkumar Sangwan warned that they would block roads and railways if the government fails to meet their demands. The protesters came in form of a procession and thronged the collectorate, where extra police force was deployed to handle the situation.
If the government is not raising the sugarcane prices under the pressure from the mill owners, they should at least ensure farmers are paid their due amount at the rate of Rs 280 a quintal in one go, Sangwan said. They also submitted a demand memorandum, addressed to the Chief Minister, to the district administration.
