Thousands of aggrieved farmers march to the Vidhan Sabha to press Govt for their demand. March was organised by the Himachal Kisan Sabha in support of their demands from the Panchayat Bhawan to the Vidhan Sabha.
Farmer leaders said that government failed to take action on their 20-point demand charter submitted to the Chief Minister in August last year. The issues in it remained unresolved and only minor demands like the installation of an electronic weighing machine at the Dhall market and increasing labour handling charges had been accepted. The main issues like damage being caused to crops by wild animals, cold store facility, support price for vegetables and bringing these under the Horticulture Department and restoration of TD rights had not been addressed.
