He alleged that the farmers of these areas were facing many problems due to the bad condition of the roads. He rued that the JICA scheme meant for crop diversification was limited only to the some lower districts of the state and this scheme should be extended to Kinnaur,Shimla and Solan so that the farmers of these districts could be benefited. The various leaders of Himachal Kisan Sabha alleged that the state government had totally failed in fulfilling their genuine demands of the farmers.
