Cancel auction process: Farmers

Urging to cancel the auction process of the ‘santhe maidan’ of Holenarasipur, and demanding alternate space for the market, farmers of   the taluk staged a protest in front of the deputy commissioner’s office in Hassan on Monday.

The protesters alleged that the Holenarasipur town municipal council had taken up auctioning of the land without providing any basic necessities.

The farmers had already urged not to auction until basic amenities were provided to those who had makeshift stalls. Despite this, the auction has been conducted.

Alternate space

They urged the deputy commissioner to provide suitable alternative land for shandy and facilities required for the cattle and cancel the auction held on July 7.

Holenarasipur taluk unit Raitha Sangha president Ningegowda, Suresh Babu, Nanjundegowda, Javaraju, Puttaraju and several ryots participated in the protest.
