    Massive Cong morcha rattles BJP-Sena govt

    Congress Morcha (2)
    The Congress took out a massive morcha to Vidhan Bhavan on Tuesday, the second day of the State Legislature’s Winter Session, to highlight failure of BJP-Shiv Sena to check farmers’ suicides and demanding among other things substantial relief to farmers from drought-hit districts, complete farm loan waiver, hike in minimum support prices (MSP) of farm produce including cotton, paddy and soyabean.

    The sheer turnout in the morcha left the conspicuously divided BJP-Shiv Sena alliance government rattled.
