Taking to Twitter, Priyanka said,''The families of sugarcane farmers toil day and night but the Uttar Pradesh government does not even take the responsibility of paying their dues.''

Furthermore she claimed, "Rs 10,000 crore of farmers' dues means everything, including their children's education, food, health, and the next produce comes to a standstill. These chowkidars only work for the rich and do not care about the poor."
