Sarwan Singh Pandher, a leader of the committee, said around Rs 350 crore dues of sugarcane purchased by mills in the state were yet to be released.
“The farmers also protested against anomalies in weighing the produce, undue cuts being made on payments and others issues.
The mill is only trying to harass farmers and the government is looking other way,” he said.
The farmers demanded that loans of farmers should be waived off.
The activists lifted their protest after receiving assurances from officials of the civil and police administration that a meeting to discuss all issues of sugarcane farmers and others would be held with the Chief Minister after December 12.
