Tiruchirapalli, Aug 22 (UNI) Farmers association repesentatives who came to attend a farmers' grievance day meeting staged a walk out here today protesting against the failure of District Collector T Soundiah to turn up.
The collector asked his juniors to hold the meeting along with other officals as he was away at another meeting with Tamil Nadu Chief Secretary J K Tripathy.
The farmers argued that their grivances did not reach the government for remedy even when the Collector chairs the meeting and sends their grivances to the Government.
How can the junior officials resolve their grievances, the agitated farmers protested.
The Collector , who was with the state Chief Secretary at a riview meeting with the distrit officials, however, rushed to the farmers meeting and persuaded them.
