Farmers burn cotton to protest delay in procurement | Aurangabad News

Aurangabad: Owing allegiance to the Shetkari Sanghatana, farmers across the state burnt cotton on Friday to mark their protest against the central and state governments for delay in procurement of cotton.
Shetkari Sanghatana state president Anil Ghanvat said that cotton worth crores of rupees is lying with the farmers even as the government continues to delay its procurement.
In a statement issued on Friday, Ghanvat and other Shetkari Sanghatana leaders said that the agitation was launched simultaneously across the state at 11 am on Friday. The farmers wore an onion garland and burnt cotton to register their protest against the governments for ignoring the farming community and their issues.
Ghanvat, who too wore the onion garland and burnt the cotton at his home in Shrigonda of Ahmednagar district, said that though the government has began purchasing cotton at some centres, they are not accepting most types of cotton. The procurement is also taking place at a snail’s pace, he said.
