Approximately 20,000 farmers and tribals on Wednesday began their two-day protest march from Thane to Mumbai demanding compensation for drought, loan waiver, hike in MSP and the transfer of forest rights to tribals.
The march started with 5,000 farmers from Thane, around 23km from the city, and has reached south Mumbai’s Byculla area, bringing traffic there to a halt. The march will culminate on Thursday in Mumbai’s Azad Maidan, where they will be joined by another 15,000 farmers.
