Maharashtra: Notice to All India Kisan Sabha to not support Swabhimani Shetkari Sangathna

Parliamentarian Raju Shetty's Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghatana has threatened to block milk supply to prominent cities in Maharashtra from Sunday midnight as a part of their agitation to demand a higher price for cow's milk. Farmers across the state have been told to start blocking milk tankers headed to prominent cities.

According to Indian Express reports, members of the farmers' union had stopped tankers of milk at Nagpur, Nanded, Parbhani along with parts of Pune, Sangli, Kolhapur and other areas of the state. Leaders of the organisation had claimed that many dairies in Ahmednagar district have decided to stop collection in support of the demands of farmers.

Also, Maharashtra Police served notice to All India Kisan Sabha's Dr Ajit Navle to not organise or participate in any protest supporting demands by Swabhimani Shetkari Sangathna, a farmers organisation that has threatened to block milk supply to Mumbai, demanding price hike for milk farmers.

It may be recalled that All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) has led "successful long march" of farmers in Maharashtra. The farmers' union was planning to hold a similar rally in the national capital to demand a special session of Parliament to discuss the agrarian crisis.
