Muktsar, October 12
Farmers lodging indefinite protest outside the residence of Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal on Tuesday burnt his effigy over his stoic silence.
Agitating farmers said their protest has entered eighth day today, but the Finance Minister has not uttered a single word so far.
Notably, farmers from five districts — Muktsar, Bathinda, Mansa, Fazilka and Faridkot – have been demanding Rs 60,000 per acre compensation for the damage to cotton crop due to pink bollworm. Besides, they have been seeking Rs 30,000 relief for every labourer family.
The state government has invited farmers to hold a meeting with senior officers in Chandigarh on October 13. — TNS
