  • Amid stir, farmers' market in Mandsaur grinds to a halt

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.
