Sugarcane farmers meet Karnataka’s Chief Minister

Sugarcane growers led by their leader and Karnataka State Sugarcane Farmers’ Association president Kurubur Shanthakumar on Wednesday met Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai and urged the government to look into their demands, including an increase in fair and remunerative price (FRP) for sugarcane.

The sugarcane growers in the State have been on strike demanding rise in sugarcane price. Shanthakumar criticised sugar mills of deceiving farmers and urged the authorities to take action against mills that were deducting more than the permissible sum towards transportation of sugarcane.
