The farmers ripped the meters installed at tubewells and brought them to Meerut from across 14 districts of Uttar Pradesh to protest the government’s decision to charge farmers for the electricity they use for irrigation.

They were also angry over the hike in power tariff. The farmers are sitting at dharna outside the office of Pashimanchal Vidyut Vitaran Nigam Limited (PVVNL) in Meerut to protest against the Government decision.
