Farmers, led by All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) - a peasants front of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), will stage a protest outside the Maharashtra legislative Assembly on March 12, demanding fair remuneration and loan waiver. The sea of farmers holding "red flags" and shouting slogans started their midnight march from KJ Somaiya Ground to Azad Maidan in Mumbai on Monday.
The farmers intend to protest until their demands are met by the government, but there is no indication when it might be.
Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray had on Saturday come out in support of the farmers who had reached Mumbai. But the farmers are reportedly not satisfied. The government can do a lot for them, but the (Maoists') ideology is stopping them.

He also said that the United States is open to modifying tariffs on individual countries, depending on how they treat the US. Japan will continue to speak to the USA about being excluded, trade minister Hiroshige Seko said separately.
Most farmers in Maharashtra are yet to receive the benefits of the loan waiver scheme, under which the government promised to waive bank loans up to Rs150,000. "I have only made an appeal that they should not cause any problem to the traffic since it's an exam day and more than one lakh students will get affected", CM Fadnavis said. Their demands include waiver of dues and loans and implementation of the Ms Swaminathan Committee report.
The Maharashtra state government says it is open to talks to end the protest. In 2017, the AIKS observed a 11-day farmers' strike and a road blockade across the state, but most of their protests, being confined within districts, never succeeded in attracting the attention of city residents. Their meeting was expected to begin at 1 pm.
The farmers found massive support from people along the way as they headed for Mumbai.
