The Tamil Nadu Vivasayigal Sangham has alleged that district officials were least interested in solving the problems faced by the farmers in the district.

Talking to reporters here on Friday, the association President S. Palanisami said a large number of farmers had assembled in the collectorate to air their grievances to the concerned authorities. “Today is the farmers grievances reddressal day. Most of the officials, including the District Collector, were not there. Nobody wants to listen to our grievances. Day by day the number of officials attending the farmers grievances day meeting is reducing. Even officials from the forest department were missing. How will our problems be solved, especially those who have farm lands near the forests,” he asked.

Palanisami also said that most of the replies they receive from the collectorate were in English. “If they give in Tamil it will be useful to us,” he added.
