Farmers start agitation demanding pending cane dues

Ambala, Punjab: Sugarcane farmers from the region have launched a hunger strike in rotation demanding pending cane dues worth Rs 100 crore from Naraingarh sugar mill, at Banondi village in the Shahzadpur area of Ambala district, reports The Times of India.

Farmers began a hunger strike on Monday with five farmers participating in the strike on the first day.

They have threatened to intensify their agitation if the administration fails to accept their demand.

BKU SBS’s spokesman Tejveer Singh said, “The farmers are forced to launch agitation by the administration.”

The mill is running in profit but is deliberately not clearing cane dues of farmers, said one of the agitators.
