Farmers picket DC Office at Mandya

February 24, 2023

Mandya: Seeking fulfillment of their various demands, which chiefly included fixation of FRP (Fair and Remunerative Price) for Sugarcane at Rs. 4,500 per tonne and Milk Procurement price at Rs. 40 per litre, thousands of farmers picketed the Mandya Deputy Commissioner’s (DC’s) Office here on Thursday.

Thousands of farmers, along with bullock carts and tractors converged at Sir M. Visvesvaraya statue and went in a procession to the DC Office, and succeeded in picketing the Office. The protesting farmers who parked their bullock carts and tractors in the DC Office premises, raised slogans against the Government and the authorities for failing to address the demands of the farmers.

The demands included withdrawal of the newly introduced three farm laws, amendments made to the APMC Act, Anti-Cow Slaughter Bill and Amended Electricity Act. The other demands included announcement of FRP for sugarcane at Rs. 4,500 per tonne, SAP (State Advisory Price) of Rs. 10,500 per quintal for cotton, Rs. 19,000 per quintal for copra and Rs. 6,500 per quintal for toor dhal, Rs. 500 financial assistance per quintal for paddy for growers of all districts, among others.

As a few farmers barged through to the DC Office after succeeding in breaking the Police barricades, tension prevailed at the spot for some time as the farmers entered into a verbal duel with the Police. Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha (KRRS) State President Badagalapura Nagendra, KRRS Mandya District President A.L. Kempugowda, Sunitha Puttannaiah, Darshan Puttanaiah, former ZP President Taggahalli Venkatesh and others took part.

  1. Howdy, Modi! says:

    These farmers should protest when Narendra Modi comes and inaugurates the Mysore-Bangalore Highway, to tell him that his rosy picture of India which he will certainly boast is bull shit.

  2. Suresh says:

    Howdy, Modi! Talk to Khalistanis. They would love to help organize a farmer protest and even serve Langar from a local Gurdwara just like they did in Delhi last time! They can even bring Canadians for this purpose!

  3. Howdy, Modi! says:

    Oh, the small brain idiot, who is on drugs, it looks like it, reading his meaningless post.

  4. Jurnail Singh says:

    Mr Howdy Modi, please ignore brainless people like Suresh! As long as intelligent people like us are there, democracy is very safe! People like him have no clue about the reality. In Punjab and Delhi people are lot more intelligent than in Southern states. They have very good relationships with our neighbors like Pakistan. They enjoy a lot of good reputation in UK, Canada and Australia. Remember how Modi was stopped and driven out and not even allowed to address the people in Panjab? We in Punjab made Modi apologize and retract Farm laws. We went on the protest for one year and thanks to all the people of Punjab, Delhi , UK and Canada, we had free and excellent food, even Air conditioning in our tents and free Movies. We even got free foot massaging! When Modi saw that we could keep the agitation for 5 years with all the free luxury, he got scared. We can do that in Karnataka too. That is true democracy! In Panjab and Delhi common man can just live on the free stuff provided by the state. Nobody need to work at all for basic living.
    Modi never speaks about how our soldiers got ‘pitaayi’ aka thrashing from Chinese! Why should anybody listen to Modi and join Army tk get beaten by Chinese?
    Even Bangladesh is economically and technologically superior to us!
    So, I am sure Modi and his gang will lose miserably in 2024!

  5. Bachhe Giwda says:

    India became a third world dump after 204 and deterioration is accelerating in all areas after corrupt Modi and Yogi took charge. India can’t afford another term of these corrupt criminals in 2024. People have to wake up and dethrone them. If they can’t find another suitable PM at least they should make Deve Gowda the PM as he has experience until a younger candidate is found.

  6. Aam Aadmi Team says:

    Kick out in the election, the 40% commission gang of Bommai and the BJP crowd.

    Rahul had it right. Chowkidaar Chor Hai
