The decision to provide some help to the farmers was taken on sunday morning and within a hour or so we arranged for the tables, chairs, biscuits and water. We ere standing from 1.30 pm on a very hot sunday, the farmers reached vikhroli around 4.45 pm . Our members were very happy to welcome them . Many of them were looking tired, their feet with wounds no slippers . It was very very sad to see these farmers both young, old alongwith many women walrking all the way from Nasik to Mumbai. The Bombay Catholic Sabha Vikhroli unit supports the farmers agitation to get their demands and request the state government to solve their long standing demands
