BENGALURU: Hundreds of farmers from across the state began a 10 day protest here on Monday against the recent amendments to the Karnataka Land Reforms Act and the Agricultural Produce Marketing Committee Act.

The farmers, who have come together under the banner ‘Aikya Horata’, held aloft banners, placards, posters and flags at a key junction here, leading to traffic jams.

Vinay Sreenivsa, one of the members of the organising committee, said they would continue their stir till September 30, demanding that the Acts be withdrawn and take a decision after that, depending on the government’s response.
