Thousands of farmers led by All India Kisan Sabha reached Azad Maidan in Mumbai on Monday. The farmers are demanding a complete waiver of loans and electricity bills. For the second time in 10 months, Maharashtra farmers cracked the whip on the government to turn the spotlight on the grave agrarian crises gripping the state by completing a long march to the Legislature, in Mumbai on Monday. More than an estimated 35,000 peasants -- men, women, youth and even seniors -- with lines of worry collectively writ on their weary faces, determinedly completed the 180-km long march over six days.
