Congress demands President's Rule be imposed in MP

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Chouhan claims the state recorded a 20 percent growth in agriculture during 2014-15 and boasts about it wining India's national agricultural award for five consecutive years. Similarly, Rs 4,400 crore went as crop insurance compensation sum past year.

Police had initially denied responsibility for the deaths of the protestors, blaming it instead on "anti-social elements" and crowd violence. "I slept intermittently and all that while I kept thinking about what all topics - out of the ones we discussed with the farmers - can be worked upon as soon as possible", Chouhan told news agency ANI on Sunday.

"Chouhan is trying to divert the public's attention from the core issue and is using cheap tricks", said the Congress leader. "People's pain is my pain", he added.

In Naya Gaon, about 70 km from Mandsaur, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, accompanied by senior Congress leaders and the JD (U) s Sharad Yadav, was detained by the police when the opposition leaders tried to make their way from the Rajasthan border to Mandsaur, the ground zero of the farmer protests. "It will continue till the time peace is restored in MP", Chouhan told a press conference here.

"The electricity distribution company in the region has been snapping power supply to farmers if they fail to pay the monthly bills instantly", he said. Calling the chief minister's fast a "tamasha", Yechury took to Twitter and wrote, "Hypocrisy at its worst: On the one hand, unleash police to kill poor farmers, and on the other, tamasha of a "fast".


Chouhan's move comes in the wake of unrest in the state following farmers staging a protest demanding better prices for their produce as also a waiver on loan repayments. In drought-ravaged Mandsaur district, the centre of this week's protests, one farmer committed suicide every five hours during the past two years. He said that a few people with vested interests were spreading rumours that the Government will not give farmers even a single penny. Later, agitation also spread to some other parts of the state. He argued that there have been such incidents of arson and firing before, but the chief minister has never avoided going to the spot. However, curfew in Pipliya Mandi will remain in the night.

While the opposition Congress is posturing as "pro-farmer" to seek to exploit the situation for its own advantage, it has the same political record as the ruling BJP.

He said the inaction of the state government forced the farmers to sell their produce below minimum support price (MSP) to middlemen.

A day later, farmers have refused to call off the strike and the state is now witnessing a shortage of milk and vegetables.
