A Farmers' Commission should be set up in to save peasants from the clutches of intermediaries and ensure a better price for their produce, a farmers' body said today.

"If the is really serious to improve the plight of the farmers and help them to get away from the trap of the intermediaries, then it should go ahead with the formation of the Kisaan Aayog," president of Rashtriya Kisaan Manch, Shekhar Dixit, said while addressing farmers in Azamgarh.

He claimed that the loan waiver announced by the state is yet to reach the farmers.

"It would be unfair on my part to make any comment on the performance of I hope that the CM will fulfil the promises, the has made in its manifesto," Dixit said.

Rashtriya Kisaan Manch is a forum of various organisations working for the welfare of farmers and their families in UP.
