Akhilesh Yadav seeks special steps for farmers hit by demonetisation

LUCKNOW: Batting for farmers hit by the Centre’s sudden demonetisation move, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make special arrangements for the farmers who are in the middle of the winter cropping season.

He said farmers who had already harvested their Kharif crops and were hoping to use cash reserves to buy the next tranche of seeds, fertilisers and pesticides for sowing Rabi crops, have been left to fend for themselves after the sudden announcement.
Akhilesh also referred to the ongoing wedding season and said many farmers had already scheduled the weddings of their children and the preparations have been badly hit.
