Sugarcane growers have once again protested in Kathmandu after sugar manufacturers failed to pay their bills.

Sugar factories, according to the farmers, have yet to pay them roughly 300 million rupees.

These farmers have repeatedly protested demanded payment of their debts.

The Sugarcane Farmers Struggle claims Indira Sugar Mill has yet to pay the farmers Rs 30 million, Lumbini Sugar Mill Rs 30 million, Annapurna Sugar Mill Rs 120 million, and Mahakali Sugar Mill Rs 90 million. “Similarly, even though Shree Sugar Mill turned over Rs 30 million to the Chief Officer of Sarlahi to be paid to farmers, the money has yet to be dispersed to the farmers.”

Earlier that day, on January 3, 2020, the agitated farmers, sugar mills, and the government negotiated an agreement to settle the debts as quickly as feasible. The farmers, on the other hand, have yet to receive full payment the sugarcane they supplied to the companies.
