Farmers from Tamil Nadu have been using unique ways of highlighting their plight while protesting at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi for the past 24 days.

Due to a dire drought situation, the farmers have been pleading the government for debt relief. In February, Tamil Nadu CM Edappadi Palanisami offered Rs 2,247 crore to more than 32 lakh farmers in the state.

After their tireless protests, it was on Wednesday that the Madras high court took cognisance and ordered the government to waive of all agricultural loans.
