Rahul denied permission to visit Mandsaur: Congress

Farmers in Madhya Pradesh are on strike from June 1 to June 10 to demand waiver of their loans and that their produce be bought at a fair price. He subsequently raised these to Rs 1 crore and Rs 5 lakh, respectively. He also listed the steps taken by his government to provide relief to the farmers.

Improved irrigation contributed to an annual agricultural growth rate of 20 per cent for the last five years, according to the state government.

At least six Indian farmers have died after being shot dead during a protest in the central state of Madhya Pradesh. "We demand that the culprits must be brought to book immediately, adequate compensation should be given and the demands of the farmers should be met".

Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi was expected to visit Mandsaur on Wednesday.

Apart from the curfew imposed on Mandsaur and Pipliamandi, section 144 was also enforced in neighbouring Ratlam district. "Initially, the administration denied that the police had opened fire at the protesting villagers".

Some of the protestors engaged in a scuffle with the Mandsaur collector and superintendent of police for their alleged delay in visiting the area, ANI reported. There were unconfirmed reports about three rounds being fired at Pipaliya Mandi area. Eye-witnesses said passengers, crying for help, ran to agriculture fields for safety. And demonetisation hit the farmers the most. Congressmen stopped a train in Dewas during the protest.

S K Singh, a senior government official in Mandsaur, told AFP the situation was broadly under control and the curfew would be lifted once the situation improved. Asked if the police will take action against those who misbehaved with him, the district magistrate said, "It was the law-enforcers' job". They also burnt down several vehicles including seven buses and a state-owned medical van. In Neemuch district, adjoining district of Mandsaur, a police outpost was torched in Harkiya Khal Phanta area.

Congress activists protest during a "Madhya Pradesh bandh" in Bhopal.

"Farmers were seeking loan waivers and right price, but the BJP killed them". It is a matter of urgency for BJP to resolve the issue with full democratic intellect (which is yet to be seen) at earliest otherwise these two states, which share their neighborhood with Gujarat, may cost BJP the elections in Gujarat in the coming months.
