London, July 23 (ANI): France has offered a 600 million euro package of urgent aid to farmers who are protesting against falling prices since days.

According to BBC, the money will help farmers manage the cash crisis by deferring or cancelling tax payments.

Some part of the amount will also help restructure debts.

Farmers said that they will assess the plan but several routes remain blocked.

Farmers have blocked the roads since several days as a part of protests.

They accuse supermarkets and the food industry of keeping prices low, forcing many of them into bankruptcy. (ANI)
