Bijnor: State government should ensure that the sugarcane farmers get their cane dues, said Digambar Singh, youth wing president of Bhartiya Kisan Union.
He said, “Cane farmers from the district are not getting their cane dues. Farmers are reeling under financial stress and are unable to meet their daily needs. Sugar mill should clear cane dues, and if they fail to do so then farmers from the district will protest against them.”
Sugarcane farmers claim they are reeling under financial burden due to a delay in cane payments.
The lockdown imposed by the government to prevent the spread of Coronavirus pandemic has also affected many sugar mills across India. Mills were unable to sell the sugar amid lockdown, due to which sugar stocks are piling up in godown. Lack of finance has also affected the mills to clear cane arrears.
