The pro-Congress Deshiya Karshaka Thozhilali Federation (DKTF) in Kerala will stage a dharna before the State Secretariat at Thiruvanthapuram to press their long pending demands.

Talking to reporters here today, DKTF President Joy Maliyekkal said the decision was taken as the government had failed to consider their demands despite repeated representations.

The demands included a minimum Rs 1,000, pension for all agricultural workers without conditions, immediate release of welfare fund arrears, among other things.
