Farmers urge government to resolve issues related to the Thirumandankudi sugar mill

Thanjavur: Sugarcane farmers under the banner of Tamil Nadu Vivasayigal Sangam, affiliated with the Communist Party of India (Marxist), have urged the state government to intervene and resolve the issue of Thirumandankudi Private Sugar Mill so that farmers would be benefited from it, reports The Hindu.

Sugar cane farmers had been staging demonstrations near the mill premises for the past 10 days seeking exoneration from the debt burden thrust on them by the previous Mill management in connivance with bank officials and disbursement of cane cost dues , said association State General Secretary Sami Natarajan in a statement issued on Friday.

The state-level and district-level office bearers of the association and Kilvelur MLA Nagai Maali have called up the agitating farmers and extended support to the agitation.
