Udupi, Jan 04, 2020: Hundreds of farmers who were protesting against the apathy of the elected representatives and officials towards the problems of the farming community, even barged into the DC office complex to excpress their anguish on January 4, Saturday. The protest was organised by the Krishika Sangha.
When the Deputy Commissioner failed to arrive at the protest venue to accept the memorandum of the farmers, they entered the office complex and failed to vacate the place until the DC arrived.
Later Deputy Commissioner Jagadeesha who arrived, was upset to see the farmers inside the office and left the venue without accepting the memorandum. This infuriated the protestors much more. The police later managed to send the protestors out.
