Sugarcane farmers thrashed under debts

Sugarcane has finally turned bitter for the farmers in Gonda, as their dues are not paid since last 6 month. Contrary to the claims of present government the situation is getting worse for the farmers with increasing corruption. The farmers are now compelled to go on strike & picked, to impel government official to solve their problem.
The roots of this crisis are buried under the mismanagement and corruption caused by Hindustan Sugar Mill when they peculate 90.64 crore rupees from 61 thousand local sugar cane farmers, who suffers badly due to forgery of the Sugar Mill owners. After excessive efforts a FIR had been lodged against the culprits but the police doesn’t seems to take any serious action against them. 
Only 57.88 Crore Rupees are paid out of 1.77 Arab for a total quantity of 64.54 lack quintals. In current scenario when the farmers are urging for justice no government official is ready to help them, making the situation even worse.
