Rahul mocks Chouhan over indefinite fast

Terming Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's indefinite fast as "pretentious and false", the Congress party on Saturday asked why the state government hadn't lodged a murder case in the killing of six protesting farmers.

Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Ajay Singh said: "While the farmers in the state are on the roads with their demands, the Chief Minister has got down to this "nautanki" (drama)".

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. I genuinely want to resolve problems of the people.

Maken said the previous Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government, with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at the helm, had written off farmer debts of Rs 70,000 crore to reduce the burden on them.

McCain Explains Iffy Performance During Comey Hearing

Mandsaur: Rahul Gandhi has been detained by police on his way to Neemuch in Madhya Pradesh on Thursday after he rode pillion on a motorcycle and walked some distance to reach Mandsaur from Rajasthan's Chittorgarh district. The state CM, however, said that any unruly elements during the discussion will be dealt with strictly. He said Pipliamandi Town Inspector Anil Singh Thakur, who had allegedly fired at the farmers causing casualties, had been removed from field duty and sent to the Mandsaur police lines.

"Not only us, but the representatives of all farmers bodies, including the Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) and Aam Kisan Union (AKU) have accepted the CM's invitation and hope a peaceful resolution to the impasse", said RKMS spokesperson Sunil Gaur. For most small farmers, the expenditure is way more than what they earn from their farm produce.

"The government is with the farmers" he said.

Earlier in the day, Chouhan, who began his indefinite hunger strike, asserted that he would not let the state engulf in violence and would ensure that peace returns.

"Our meeting with Chief Minister was cordial, but we will continue our agitation till our demands are met", he declared.

"I won't sit in my office at Vallabh Bhawan on Saturday, but instead start a fast at the Dussehra ground in the BHEL campus at Bhopal from 11 am".

The Congress also sought imposition of central rule in Madhya Pradesh, saying that the state was in turmoil. Due to more production, prices have come down but Government is committed to give farmers beneficial price. "Police cane charged and arrested us", claimed Congress leader Yogendra Chouhan.
