"The price of fertilizers and farming equipment is increasing day by day but we are not getting the right price for our crops. We are at loss," he said.
Talking about the menace they face from wild animals, another farmer said that their pleas to the government have fallen on deaf ears.
"Wild animals, particularly monkeys, destroy our crop. The government says that farmers will have to deal with it on their own. We do not have guns or any other equipment to tackle the wild animals. Attempts to shoot monkeys have resulted in the accidental death of at least 5 people," he said.
"We will protest outside Vidhan Sabha if the government doesn't listen to us. We will vote only for that political party which will solve our problems and come up with schemes for the welfare of the farming community," said Thakur.
