According to Vidarbha Janandolan Samiti President Kishore Tiwari, farmers are demanding free seeds and fertilisers and fresh crop loan as the situation is going from bad to worse due to lack of rains.

Even after second and third sowing, there was no drop of rain, which has led to growing tension and anxiety among the farming community.

Vidarbha region had already earned a dubious name for record number of farmers' suicide due to crop failure and indebtedness, Tiwari said.
