If our demands are not fulfilled we will start our protest again after 25th May. If we get train tickets, will leave today, said Ayyakanu, one of the farmers protesting at Jantar Mantar.
During the meeting, Tamil Nadu Chief minister K Palaniswami assured the farmers of his help and said that he will request Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the loan waiver.
