Muzaffarnagar: The Bharatiya Kisan Union has
threatened to launch an agitation for sugarcane growers if the
current sugarcane prices are not revised by the state
government.

Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) president Mahender Singh
Tikait has alleged that the state government, under pressure
from sugar mill owners, is not announcing sugarcane prices.
Rejecting sugar mill owners` claims that they cannot
raise the prices, BKU has demanded that prices be fixed on the
basis of sugar rates, he said.

BKU has warned of launching an agitation if the state
government fails to fix reasonable prices for sugarcane
growers in the state, he added.
