Agriculture Minister K.P. Mohanan told the Assembly on Monday that the government was willing to concede the demands of endosulfan victims.
The Minister was replying to the demands for grants for Agriculture, Animal Husbandry, and Stationary and Printing and other Administrative Services. Mr. Mohanan said mothers of the victims had decided to go ahead with their indefinite hunger strike despite the government promising to concede all their demands. It had already doubled the monthly assistance to them and decided to pay the compensation recommended by the National Human Rights Commission.
