Farmers protest against MESCOM

MANGALORE, NOV. 29. Several farmers took out a rally here today in protest against what they called the "anti-farmer policies" of Mangalore Electricity Supply Company Ltd. The rally was organised by the district unit of Bharatiya Kisan Sangh and Mangalore Zone Power Consumers' Union.

The farmers, who staged a dharna in front of the MESCOM office, submitted a memorandum to the Managing Director of MESCOM, Arvind Risbud. They complained that the Company was not adhering to various government directives, causing undue hardship to them. Mr. Risbud promised to go through their memorandum and take corrective measures. The farmers then went to the Deputy Commissioner's office and submitted another memorandum.
