Bhongir: Demanding immediate release of incentives to dairy farmers who were supplying milk to Mother Dairy, the leaders of Milk Producers' Welfare Association have organised a protest in front of district collectorate in Bhongir on Monday.

Addressing the gathering, the leaders the Association stated that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao has announced an incentive of Rs 4 per litre a year ago. However, even after 14 months, the government failed to provide the announced incentive to dairy farmers, they alleged. Expressing their concern, they informed that maintaining cattle has becoming a huge burden with the increasing input costs and added that cattle were dying due various unknown reasons.

They demanded the immediate release of pending incentives to dairy farmers and implement insurance to cattle in order to save the dairy sector. Later, a delegation of dairy farmers submitted a memorandum to District Collector Anita Ramachandran.
