Mysugar: Farmers withdraw stir
A section of farmers and progressive groups who were on a strike from the last 37 days against moves to privatise Mysugar company withdrew the agitation on Tuesday.
This was consequent to Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai dropping the privatisation move and announcing that an expert committee will be constituted to suggest measures to revive the factory.
The agitation against privatisation was backed by Jilla Raitha Hitarakshana Samiti and supported by various groups and was on from September 13.
The leaders welcomed the decision and said the Chief Minister should be appreciated for taking cognisance of the demands put forth by farmers transcending their political leanings.
