Tension prevails at the farmers protest at Kondaskoppa near Suvarna Vidhan Soudha with agitating farmers intending to picket Suvarna Vidhan Soudha walking towards the Soudha.

The farmer's protest which has entered the sixth day was insisting for Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to visit the protest spot and clarify on the governments stand in clearing the sugar cane dues of the farmers.

Going out of patience after the deadline was served for CM arrival a section of farmers walked a distance of one kilometre towards the Soudha attempting to picket the Soudha condemning the indifferent attitude of the government towards the farmers.

The police on duty, however, stopped the farmers near the national highway at Kondaskoppa cross. The police assured the farmers that the CM would visit the protest spot and pacified the protesters who returned back. However, with farmers going out of control tension prevailed at the spot.
