Mumbai: After walking for about 180 km in the soaring temperature, about 35,000 farmers and agricultural workers from entered the country's financial capital Mumbai on Sunday, demanded complete loan waiver and higher support prices for their crop among other things.

For the second time in 10 months, Maharashtra farmers cracked the whip on the government to turn spotlight on the grave agrarian crises gripping the state by completing a long march to the Legislature, here on Monday.

Farmers march under the banner of by All India Kisan Sabha, in Mumbai on March 11, 2018. The government had requested farmers to assemble at Azad Maidan on Sunday night to avoid traffic snarls on Monday morning as students have their board exams. "I am confident that the farmers can expect a positive outcome at tomorrow's meeting". Moreover, one round of farmers' protests had already taken place in June previous year, culminating in the announcement of a loan waiver, and with recent figures indicating an 8.3 per cent drop in the agriculture sector, the fresh protests are likely to put the BJP in a further bind. The Maharashtra government had requested the farmers to withdraw their stir, but the farmers have refused to do so. "If anyone dies during that strike, it is Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis' fault", he said.

USA demands 'concrete actions' before summit with N. Korea
North Korea has long protested the military maneuvers south of the divided Korean Peninsula as a rehearsal for invading the North. They have created the conditions for him to be treated by an American president as an equal rather than as an awkward pariah.

"A delegation would be permitted to meet the Chief Minister, but we can not allow them to march till Vidhan Bhavan". Ajit Nawale is just another farmer. Still, if the Fadnavis Government tries to dilly-dally on the issue of farm loan waiver or take the farmers for a ride, it will pay heavily for its act. "It is the farmers who voted for you in large numbers, not the industrialists", the agitating farmers had recently told BJP President Amit Shah.

"We will not call off our agitation till we get written assurances from the Chief Minister that the committed to settle all our demands", Nawale said.

The ABKS was part of the steering committee of farmers' outfits that started unprecedented strikes past year.
