A district level organising team of All India Kissan Maha Sabha (AIKMS) constituted in Villupuram decided to undertake a district wide propaganda campaign centring around peasants’ demands. As acute crisis engulfs the entire peasantry, several cases of suicides and shock deaths have also been reported in the district. There is a scarcity of drinking water. Though the district was announced as drought hit nothing has been done to mitigate the sufferings of the people. The campaign will culminate in a mass dharna on May 29 at Villupuram district headquarters.
