Hyderabad sources reported that in a bid to highlight their problems, about 100 turmeric farmers 50 each from Telangana and Tamilnadu, are planning to file nominations as independents from the Varanasi constituency, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi is seeking re-election. PK Deivasigamani, president of the Turmeric Farmers Association of India said, they will file their nominations before April 29. "They are in the process of arranging funds towards deposit to contest the polls" and Varanasi will go to the polls in the last phase on May 19.

Reportedly Deivasigamani said "Whether it is the BJP government or Congress government, farmers are always neglected. About 50 farmers from Tamilnadu and 50 from Telangana will be contesting from Varanasi. We want to highlight farmers issues. We never got any profitable price for our produce". Furthermore he claimed all over the country, farmers were neglected as far as government policies are concerned. Deivasigamani alleged 381 farmers committed suicide last year. Meanwhile, as many as 177 farmers contested as independents in Nizamabad during the April 11 Lok Sabha elections as a mark of protest against the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi which they allegedly failed to ensure minimum support price for turmeric and red jowar (sorghum) produce and in getting a Turmeric Board established in Nizamabad.


Moreover, the Election Commission had to make special arrangements for the Nizamabad polls due to a large number of contestants. Hence the EC had used over 26000 Ballot Units and 2200 Control Units and about 26,000 VVPATs for the people to cast their vote.
