Maha farmers end strike after 'satisfactory' talks with govt

Mumbai: Subsequent to keeping state on hold for more than 48 hours, Maharashtra farmers today called off their ‘strike’ after the ‘satisfactory’ talks they had with the state government.

This decision came after approximately five hours marathon negotiations between Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and the leaders of Kisan Kranti core committee, which ended here early today.

“We are open to a farm loan waiver… We shall set up a committee for the purpose which will include farmers’ representatives and take a decision by October 31,” Fadnavis told mediapersons after the meeting.



Thereafter, Kisan Kranti leaders said that nearly 70 per cent of their demands have been met by the government and accordingly the ‘successful strike’ was called off immediately.
