The sugarcane farmers have been bound to walk to the capital to protest demanding that the government should ensure their payments from the sugar mills. At such time, Indushankar Mill is paying all its dues in time.
According to the officials at the mill, they have already paid Rs. 390 million to the farmers.
According to Nepal, since the government has not issued a new rate for sugarcane, they are providing money to the farmers on the basis of the earlier year’s rate. “If the rate is to be changed, we will tally it and provide remaining amount to the farmers at the earliest.”
The farmers have urged all the sugar mills to abide by their responsibilities and pay the amount of the collected sugarcane at the earliest so that they did not have to launch any struggle.
