Over 100 farmers from Mayem, under the banner of All Goa Kisan Vikas Morcha, gathered in front of the main gate of a mining company in Bicholim on Monday, to stage to protest against the alleged negligent attitude of the company in compensating farmers whose fields have been destroyed by mining silt. The farmers threatened to disrupt ore transportation activity if the company does not sort out the issue at the earliest. The farmers were led by the group’s president Kamlakant Gadekar and advocate Jatin Naik.
