Farmers across 22 districts in Odisha have launched a Satyagrah for their rights. First they organised a huge rally in Bhubaneshwar, then as many as 306 of them went on a hunger strike. On March 17, as their hunger strike entered the 6th day, many had to be hospitalised due to their deteriorating health. On the 8th day, some farmers resorted to a Rail Roko in Jagatsinghpur.
And here are a few pictures of peaceful ‘sit-in’ protests that were held outside the District Collectors’ offices in 22 districts across Odisha.
