Despite "ban" under swine flu, South Gujarat tribal farmers protest non-payment of sugarcane dues

By Our Representative
South Gujarat's upcoming tribal farmers' organization, Adivasi Kisan Sangharsh Morcha (AKSM), has gone ahead with protests in Vyara town of Tapi district over "non-payment" of dues to the sugarcane growers despite a "ban" imposed under the pretext of prevalence of swine flu. "There is no satisfactory answer from the authorities on how the payment, pending since 1996, would be made", says AKSM's Romel Sutariya, who is leading the protest for the 11 days at different spots in the town.
