The rally and siege are ways to raise farmer issues and way to vent their (farmers’) anger and frustration towards the BJP government, Amit Chavda, state party president said.
Other than farm loan waiver, the other demands put forth by the Congress include adequate minimum support price (MSP) for farm produce, good quality fertilisers and seeds at a reasonable rate and adequate supply of water and electricity.
