Mandya: SAP rate for sugarcane needs to be raised to Rs. 4,500 per tonme. Demanding this, the Farmers’ Union activists started an indefinite sit-in on Monday November 7 in front of Sir M. Visvesvaraya statue.

Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai had promised to fix the SAP rate when he disrupted the Mysuru Dasara and staged a protest demanding fixing the price of sugarcane. But so far the Government has not fixed the SAP rate,” they said.

The indefinite agitation will continue till the Government fixes the SAP rate for sugarcane. The people’s representatives of the District urged them to put pressure on the Government over the price of sugarcane.

“Siddaramaiah, who was the Chief Minister earlier, had announced Rs. 150 as a price when the farmers had protested. However, the BJP Government is not responding to the problems of farmers. The promise made by Co-operation Minister S. T. Somashekar has turned out to be false. Sugar Minister Shankar Munenakoppa had said that he would give good news for Deepavali,” they recalled and added, “However, the farmers expressed their displeasure that no good news has been given till date.
