Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan calls off 'peace fast' in Madhya Pradesh

15 Juin 2017

On Sunday, Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan ended his "fast for peace" at Dussehra Maidan in Bhopal.

Curfew, which was imposed after five people were killed in police firing during a farmers' protest on June 6, was relaxed for 12 hours in five police station areas of the district.

"Radha Mohan Singh has no moral right to remain in-charge of agriculture ministry after the killing of farmers in BJP ruled Madhya Pradesh", said Maharathy before he was taken into custody.

A 26-year-old farmer died in Badavan village of the district, with locals alleging on Friday that he was beaten up by policemen.

The second day of the indefinite fast began with Mahatma Gandhi's favourite bhajan "Vaishnav Jan" at 11 am.

Meanwhile, the Congress termed the indefinite fast by Chouhan amid farmers unrest in the state, as a "pretence" and asked him to prepare for his "political exile".

The Chief Minister also requested the protestors to come and talk with him in person, saying that he is open to discussions to solve the problem at hand.

Sirohi further said that all farmer unions would meet on June 18 to decide the next course of ongoing agitations.

An English flag was displayed by a section of the Stade de France crowd as the teams entered the field on a balmy evening. Larger scale attacks killed dozens in Nice last year and in Paris the year before that.

He said, "People whose property & vehicles have been charred & vandalised will be provided with compensation".

The CM, reaching out to cultivators, also met 15 delegations of small farmers and 236 panels of big farmers yesterday.

The government has made a decision to set up a Rs 1,000 crore corpus to ensure stabilisation of farm produce prices so as to ensure remunerative prices of crops.

Chouhan broke his fast with a sip of coconut water at 2.45 pm amid Aandhi nahi toofan hai Shivraj Singh Chouhan hai slogans by supporters - accentuating how the fast for peace-cum-dialogue with protesting farmers turned into a show of strength for the his supporters. The Chief Minister is sitting at BHEL's Dussehra Maidan, where, he has also asked farmers to come and discuss their problems with him.

Farmers in Madhya Pradesh's Mandsaur district have been protesting for better prices for their produce and loan waiver.

He was performing his fast at the Dussehra Maidan in Bhopal since Saturday.

He also denied allegations of Congress instigating the violence in the state.

"He also said anyone now buying farmers" produce below MSP at agri markets will face legal action. Later, protests spread to some other parts of the state. AAP, whose national convener and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal sat on a hunger strike in 2014 against the Centre-controlled police, said that Chouhan's fast was different from Kejriwal's as the former is the CM of a full state.
