Mysuru: Coinciding with the farmers’ protest in New Delhi which has completed one year, various organisations comprising farmers, Dalits, labourers, women, students and others staged a protest near Kiranguru Circle here on Friday November 26.

Bullock carts, tractors, cows, buffaloes and other domestic animals formed part of the protest. The protestors said, “Minimum Support Price for farmers’ produce should be legalised while anti-labour laws should be scrapped. State Land Reforms’ Bill, APMC Reforms Act and Anti-Cow Slaughter Act should be done away with. The privatisation of some of the government sectors should also be put on hold.”

They said, “Rs 4,500 per tonne should be fixed for sugarcane. The due amount of farmers should be transferred to their accounts. The government should open permanent purchase centres for paddy.” The other demands were permanent ban on mining near KRS Reservoir in Mandya District.

The protestors were also demanding the State Government to hand over Mandya Co-operative Milk Union (Mymul) case to the CBI. Besides a stay on National Education Policy 2020, the protestors want the government to look into damages caused by rain in the recent past.
