Chaudhry to meet with farmers

Fiji Labour Party (FLP) Leader and National Farmers Union (NFU) general secretary, Mahendra Chaudhry, will be in Lautoka tomorrow to meet with farmers.

Chaudhry was supposed to hold a meeting in Labasa last Saturday(9th May) but it was dferred because of the death of his younger brother, Ravindra.

It's not known whether Chaudhry will take a resolution at tommorrow's meeting asking farmers to boycott harvesting.

Sources say this is what he had planned to do at last Saturday’s Labasa meeting.

The 2009 harvesting and crushing season will kick off at the Penang mill on 19th May with harvesting a day earlier.

The NFU meeting comes 2 days after the resignation of Sugar Cane Growers Council Chief Executive Surendra Sharma was reported by the media.

Sharma had quit on 4th May and this was reported by Coupfourpointfive that evening.
