Farmers demand return of tractors

Farmers staged demonstration demanding to return the tractors seized from farmers by financiers.

A farmers’ outfit called ‘National-South Indian River Link Farmers Association’ organised a novel protest to insist this demand apart from other demands in front of collectorate here on Monday.

The protesters came not wearing anything on their top and wielding a ‘thiruvodu’ to show that they were begging for their demands.

Protesters said that 17 tractors have been seized by financiers from the farmers who borrowed for buying tractors in the last one year, despite the supreme court’s order to not to seize tractors from farmers.

The protesters demanded action from collector in this regard.

They also demanded that even the land and jewels mortgaged by farmers should not be auctioned.
