After their 40-day protest in the national capital earlier this year, farmers from Tamil Nadu today returned to Jantar Mantar for a second round of agitation for loan waiver and a drought-relief package.
"This time we are determined and would even dare to die, instead of being cheated. Rain or sun, our agitation will not stop," declared P Ayyakkannu, who is spearheading the agitation, as around 50 farmers sat on the Jantar Mantar road shouting slogans.
They will join an indefinite protest after their counterparts, taking part in a 'Kisan Mukti Yatra', reach Jantar Mantar tomorrow.
They had grabbed eyeballs earlier this year with their innovative, and at times increasingly desperate, modes of protest.
