Telangana: Fall In Cotton Prices Spark State-Wide Farmer Protests

With cotton prices ruling lower than last year, cotton farmers in Telangana have decided to hold State-wide protests, demanding ₹15,000 a quintal. The discontent over low prices is widespread, and hundreds of farmers engage in dharnas. Farmers stocked thousands of quintals of cotton in their homes across villages in the hope it would fetch higher prices in the near future. The central government has announced Rs.6,380 as MSP for cotton. Farmers hope the cotton prices will be increased soon by the central government.
