Representatives from the Khapas said that there is resentment among the common farmers in western UP due to increased electricity rates, delay in cane price payment and non-increase in sugarcane price.
Harvir Singh of Phugana Thamba said that when irrigation from state tube wells and canals can be free, then why can the private tubewells of farmers not be provided electricity free or at low rates. Khap representatives said that sugarcane is the main crop in western UP. The government should focus on the betterment of sugarcane farmers. For a long time, the farmers do not get the arrears of payment, while the interest they get on the loans, seeds, and loans taken from the bank. The rise in electricity rates is causing a crisis in the payment of electricity bills.
