NALGONDA: Farmers, agitated over failure of the Agriculture Department officials as also traders for the last two days to provide cotton seed, continued their protest in Suryapet town for the third day in a row on Thursday.
They have been queuing up before the Old Bus-Stand ‘Mana Grow More Rythu Seva Kendram' seeking Mico brand of seed. According to officials, farmers were refusing to take other brands which are available.
The official charged some of the seed dealers with winding up their sales maintaining that there were no stock, after selling only a few packs. On Thursday, at least two farmers climbed a cell tower to protest denial of seed they wanted. Persuasion by fellow ryots, police made them come down.
The agitating farmers were also involved in a scuffle with the police, who tried to restore order at queues.
