DMK president MK Stalin on Saturday met Tamil Nadu protesting farmers in Delhi and slammed the Union government for not paying any attention to them.

"Tamil Nadu farmers have been continuously protesting in Delhi but the Centre does not seem to be bothered about it," Stalin said after meeting the farmers.

Saying that an all party meet should be convened to address farmers' issue, he said that Tamil Nadu chief minister should also visit them and find a solution to their problems.

"An all party meeting should be convened on this issue," he said, adding Tamil Nadu CM should come and find a solution to their problems, instead he is busy with RK Nagar by poll in Chennai.

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Friday met protesting Tamil Nadu farmers at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi and sought drought relief funds from Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the farmers.

Nearly two weeks now, a group of farmers from Tamil Nadu are protesting in New Delhi, demanding drought relief from the government. From holding skulls, rats, dead snakes to wearing black clothes, the agitated farmers are carrying out protests in unique ways to draw attention from the government.
