Thousands of farmers protests against BJP-led govt to address their problems

Almost 35,000 to 40,000 farmers are planning to gherao the Vidhan Bhavan and do a jail bharo andolan on Monday if their demands are not met.

Meanwhile, the state government today issued an advisory to those appearing in the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examination cautioning them to reach their respective examination centres before time to avoid any hassles. The police have made heavy security arrangements in place in anticipation. About 35,000 farmers have walked 30 km each day since Tuesday under the searing sun, resting only for meals and the night's sleep.They demand a waiver of their loans and better prices for their produce. Now, there are more people coming by morning trains from all over Maharashtra. "In any case, we don't have much money, and we can't keep missing work days to stage demonstrations". Girish Mahajan, water resources minister and guardian minister of Nashik, had met the organisers ahead of the march.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers turns the screw on rivals Rangers
Few of the 50,000 Rangers fans who witnessed their side claim a 3-2 win over Celtic in March 2012 would have imagined that six years later they'd still be waiting to celebrate another Old Firm victory in the Scottish Premiership .

There were also conflicting claims on the number of farmers taking part in the rally. But the bank says it doesn't know anything about it, and I should go ask the person who sent me the message. Shiv Sena and Samajwadi Party, too, have extended support to the marching farmers. Interestingly, the CPI (M) has been always opposed to Sena. "Some farmers in Dindori taluk have faced bank action and confiscation of tractors", he said. "We have also arranged toilet blocks from Thane Municipal Corporation", Shinde said.

Except the ruling BJP, all other major political parties - Congress, NCP, Shiv Sena, RPI, Bharip Bahujan Mahasangh and MNS have lent their support to the farmers' protest.

The farmers are also demanding transfer of forest land that they have been cultivating since generations in their name, besides forceful acquisition of farm lands for development projects. We are not getting commensurate prices for our crops like rice, nachani and tur.

"The agrarian crisis is very severe". We have been tilling it for years.
