The main demand was the implementation of complete loan waiver scheme and a fair price for farm products. Some other demands are implementing the recommendations of Swaminathan commission and compensation for the hailstorm affected farmers of Maharashtra.
Other than farmers a large number of tribal community people have also joined their hands in the farmers' march. Apart from tribes and farmers reports confirmed many other social activists were stuck to the march hence the march became one of the biggest farmer protest of the nation in recent time around half a lakh civilians joined the protest within three days of their march towards Mumbai.
The farmers demanded to stop the forceful acquisition of their farmlands for governmental projects. this protest is considered as one of the nation's biggest farmer protest and rally. Some kind of concepts rallying over the twitter like, When farmers entered the city they marched after midnight to avoid the inconvenience of citizens and school students. The farmers are caring for the society and surroundings but when will the government going to do the same for them in return. How could be the government repay their efforts to own their rights back?
