Goa: Sugarcane farmers threaten agitation


Poinguinim: Sugarcane farmers under the banner of Uss Utpadak Sangharsh Samiti (UUSS) have threatened to launch an agitation if the government fails to abide by the promise of paying them compensation.

Chandan Unandkar, vice president of the group said, “The meeting held on January 6. Chief Minister Pramod Sawant had assured them that they would be paid compensation at the rate of Rs 3,600 per tonne, considering average production over eight years. He had also agreed to clear their fields free of cost.”
