KATHMANDU, DECEMBER 13
Sugarcane farmers from Sarlahi have again started a protest in Kathmandu asking the government to help them recover their due payments from sugar mills. A total of 25 farmers from Sarlahi have reached Kathmandu to begin a protest from today. They have demanded the government to fulfil the commitment that it had made earlier.
However, the commitment has not been fulfilled till date.
Thus, the farmers have again resorted to the protest programme, said the leader of the committee, Rakesh Mishra.
Back then the government had committed to recover their due payments by mid-December. However, no progress has been made yet, thus the farmers have been compelled to come to Kathmandu to protest, he added.
