According to the sugarcane farmers, sugar mills are delaying the payments citing lockdown as a reason and shortage of finance. Sugarcane Farmers’ Action Committee secretary Hari Shyam Raya said, “We will launch an agitation if the sugar mills fail the clear our dues. We had launched agitation earlier in January but called off after we were assured of clearing dues.”
