A delegation of protesting farmers met Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to discuss their demands and called off their protest after receiving a positive response from the government, a member of the team said. Thousands of tribal farmers marched from adjoining Thane district to Azad Maidan in South Mumbai over two days seeking redressal of their grievances, which include compensation for drought and transfer of land rights to tribals. Fadnavis assured them of transferring land rights within the next three months. A committee headed by the Chief Secretary will take regular review of the progress, he told the delegation.
