Sangareddy: As many as 2000 sugarcane farmers organised a rally and staged a protest at Zaheerabad revenue divisional headquarters on Friday demanding that Trident Sugars resume preparatory activities for sugarcane crushing this year.
The mill based in Kottur was not operating from the last few years and had resumed operations last year. The company officials cleared some part of the pending cane dues to the cane farmers last year after the intervention of Minister for Finance Harish Rao and Collector Hanumantha Rao.
The farmers were forced to sell their sugarcane to other mills last year and are hoping that the mill would start operations earlier this year so that they could sell cane to the mill.
According to the news report published in Thehindu.com, a farmer, who participated in the agitation, said, “We have launched a protest demanding that the Trident Sugars should start crushing activities earlier this year so that we could sell cane to the mill on time.”
