Hundreds of activists of Navnirman Krushak Sangathan will stage a dharna in Bhubaneswar from December 9 to highlight the demands of the farmers of the State.

According to State convenor of the Sangathan Akshaya Kumar, the dharna will demand adequate compensation for the farmers who had been affected by the cyclone and floods in October; additional bonus of Rs.500 per quintal of paddy over the minimum support price fixed by the Centre; effective marketing system and cold storage facility; and provision of seed and fertilizer. They will also demand change in the State government’s policy to give legal status to the share croppers who actually cultivate the land, Mr. Kumar said on Wednesday.
