Drought-hit farmers protest against Centre

Despite the Tamil Nadu farmers calling off their strike at Delhi's Jantar Mantar, another group of farmers took to the roads in Coimbatore, to protest against the Centre on Monday. With their mouths covered with black clothes, the agitated farmers raised slogans against the Government and demanded establishment of Cauvery Management Board and waiving off of their loans. Meanwhile the Dravida Munnetra Kazhaghan (DMK) Party has called for a state-wide shutdown in support of drought-hit farmers.
