Kakinada: About 500 farmers staged a dharna in front of the Collector’s office here on Monday under the aegis of All India Kisan Mazdoor Sabha (AIKMS) demanding the scrapping of cooperative farming proposal.

It was a sequel to the resolution AIKMS passed in its general council meeting against the State Government’s plan to promote cooperative farming in place of the conventional system.

A delegation led by AIKMS State president P. Tanya submitted a memorandum to the Collector Gopalakrishna Dwivedi.
