Farmers are on strike from June 1. Farmers intimated government about this. This strike has been called to press for their demands, but some miscreants tried to give violent turn to this strike. Cases were filed against poor farmers through this. Cases like robbery were filed against them. This is harmful for democracy. Government and police should stop this immediately and take all cases back against them and they should be released or agitation will be staged, warns the memorandum given to the District Collector.
