NATIONAL Farmers Union president Surendra Lal has been released.

In an interview, Mr Lal described his arrest on Monday evening as a form of intimidation.

The arrest, he added has not shaken his belief to continue to voice the concerns of farmers.

“The police team was good to me and we worked well together,” he said.

“But I am asking police to leave the farmers alone because this will not solve anything.”
