Amroha: Sugarcane farmers have threatened to launch an agitation if their demand to attack their cane purchase centre with Narayanpur sugar mill, according to amarujala.

Farmers created ruckus at the sugarcane committee office on Tuesday to pressurize their demand and demanded to exclude their centre from the Syohara sugar mill and connect it with the Narayanpur sugar mill.

Farmers said that for the last two years they are demanding that their cane purchase centres including Baan, Aawi Hafizpur and Fazalpur be excluded from the Syohara mill and connect with the Narayanpur sugar mill. The sugarcane secretary and district cane officer had accepted their demand and in a meeting organised on September 7 a proposal in this regard was passed, said farmers.

The farmers have stated that now they want the concerned authorities to decide on their demand on a priority basis. The Deputy sugarcane commissioner has asked them to meet him on Wednesday to discuss the issue in detail.
