The farmers from Tamil Nadu staging a protest for over a month at Jantar Mantar here resorted to a unique 'grass-eating' agitation today to highlight their woes.

The farmers brought grass to the protest venue and ate it in front of mediapersons.

"We are trying everything to make the prime minister take note of our plight, but in vain. So, we are eating grass," one of the protesting farmers told PTI.

The farmers have been coming up with unique ways to highlight their problems. Yesterday, they wore sarees with wedding knots.

Several politicians of regional and national parties, actors and farmers' unions have extended support to the protesting farmers.

"Despite parleys with Union ministers, our situation has remained unchanged," said the farmer.

The demands of the farmers include a Rs-40,000 crore drought relief package from the Centre, farm loan waiver and setting up of the Cauvery Management Board.
