The protesters marched-on with their red flags, camped in Azad Maidan in Mumbai, critisized the Government for their policies and presented 13 demands to be fullfilled.
The farmers even marched throughout the night in Mumbai in order to keep the Maximum city out of chaos in the morning concentrating specifically on students appearing for exams in the morning. While the farmers carried their food with them, Mumbaikars did not leave the opportunity to lend a helping hand to the people who feed the entire state. Mumbaikars came out with water, food, medical equipments, footwear, etc.
While the farmers led by All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) camped at Azad maidan, their leader Ashok Dhawale kept 13 demands that were to be fulfilled by the Government. The most important demands included that complete loan waiver, implementation of Swaminathan Commission, compensation for crop losses due to untimely rains, hailstorms, land acquisition reform, lower farmer’s suicide, etc. to name a few. The uproar of these farmers was heard by the Legislative Assembly as well as in the Parliament. Honorable Chief Minister in the assembly addressed the issue and asserted his Government’s support to the farmers. Apart from that, NGOs, political parties like Shiv Sena openly supported the agitating farmers.

According to the CM, the meeting with the farmers went positive, where the Government assured the farmers in writing that all their demands will be met.
