A human chain was formed in front of Tarash Upazila Press Club in Sirajganj district on Monday morning, demanding fair price of paddy.
Marginal farmers of eight unions in the upazila participated in the programme, arranged by voluntary organization ‘Amrao achhi pashe’,
Expressing solidarity with the farmers, people from various professions also took part at the human chain.
Speakers at the programme said farmers harvested paddy by taking loan but now they are to sell their produce at a nominal price which cannot cover their production costs.
The speakers also urged the government to stop farmers’ cry by purchasing their produces at a fair price.
