  • Curfew Lifted From Remaining Areas Of Violence Hit Mandsaur

Expressing grief over the escalating farmers' agitation, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Friday said he will sit on an indefinite fast in Dussehra Maidan here until peace is restored.

Chouhan's move comes in the wake of unrest in the state following farmers staged a protest demanding better prices for their produce as also a waiver on loan repayments. He announced that an ordinance will be brought to ensure that farmers receive fair compensation on acquiring of their land. "We haven't seen any chief minister keeping a fast for poor farmers", a farmer told ANI.

A commission will be set up to work out the cost of production of farm produce and a Rs 1,000 crore fund will be created to help farmers when prices crash, the CM reiterated.

Meanwhile, curfew was on Saturday lifted from Mandsaur city as the district, the epicentre of the farmers' agitation in Madhya Pradesh, remained peaceful though the restrictions on assembly would remain in force.

The CPI-M said the demand for loan waiver was being raised due to rural distress and farmers' suicides.

Police tried to stop the Congress leaders from going to the area, saying there was a curfew in Mandsaur. Would the government reply why farmers are not getting actual price for their crops.

Rajagopal P V, Gandhian activist, and former Vice Chairman of the Gandhi Peace Foundation, is likely to meet Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Sunday evening to seek intervention to stop ongoing farmers protest in Madhya Pradesh.

Another BJP leader and member of parliament Meenakshi Lekhi said that the BJP always stood by the farmers while the opposition has never done anything apart from cribbing about the situation. He said that no case will be registered against farmers but such people will not be spared.

State Ministers and the kin of peasants killed in police firing earlier urged the Chief Minister to end his fast.

Farmers from all over Madhya Pradesh have been meeting Chouhan at the Dussehra Maidan since Saturday.

Accusing the Congress party of firing from the shoulders of the farmers, Rao further said that grand old party is responsible for giving a violent turn to entire Mandsaur incident.
