Shots fired at protest kill 5 farmers in central India

Madhya Pradesh farmers protest Raj Thackeray Maharashtra Navnirman Sena MNS leadership Ahmednagar district Shiv Sena

A Rs 1,000-crore stabilisation fund would also be set up. Madhya Pradesh is also creating a Rs1,000 crore price stabilization corpus to help the government and farmers tide over price fluctuations.

"Farmers of Madhya Pradesh are peace-loving".

While the protesting farmers have been demanding a complete loan-waiver, state's Women and Child Development Minister Archana Chitnis said the government is contemplating a formula wherein it may waive interest on crop loans.

A round-the-clock curfew was imposed in Madhya Pradesh's Mandsaur district. Violence broke out at Piplia Toll Naka in Pipliamandi on the sixth day of the farmers' protest when the agitators pelted stones at the police and burnt vehicles passing on the road. Earlier, they got into a scuffle with the collector and superintendent of police of Mandsaur district over them delaying their visit to the area, ANI said. Several public transport buses on the Indore-Bhopal road were damaged and torched.

The Indian government has chose to deploy five more battalions of the paramilitary force in Madhya Pradesh's Mandsaur district, ANI reported. The six persons who were killed in firing on Tuesday belong to the powerful Patidar community which has a strong presence in the Mandsaur-Neemach belt.

A Madhya Pradesh state minister blamed the casualties on the farmers. The extra forces would be deployed in violence-hit Ujjain, Dewas, Mandsaur, Neemuch and Sehore, an official said. "They want to turn this into another Patidar versus BJP stir". A large number of farmers have committed suicide in the state due to crop failures mainly in the region where US-based MNC Monsanto aggressively sold its Bt Cotton to farmers.

When agitation became out of control, police allegedly fired to disperse the farmers.

Talking to Business Line, leader of the SSS and MP Raju Shetty said: "Radha Mohan Singh (Agriculture Minister) and Ram Vilas Paswan (Minister for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution) have destroyed agriculture in India".

In a surprise development, a delegation of top farmers' leaders met Maharashtra Navnirman Sena President Raj Thackeray here on Tuesday and asked them to "lead them". "Farmers' demands are genuine", Scindia added.

Yadav, however, dismissed these claims saying the Congress would stand with farmers.

The farmers are demanding better remuneration for their produce and also a loan waiver. It is shameful that the state government is crushing farmers' agitation.

RSS-affiliated Bharatiya Kisan Sangh's Kshetriya Sangathan Mantri Shivkant Dixit had said farmers had made a decision to withdraw their stir saying the CM has agreed to "most of their demands". "Farmers were not carrying weapons", said Gajendra Tokas of the Rashtriya Kisan Mazdoor Sangh, or National Farm Workers' Union, which has called a state-wide strike on Wednesday. "Farmers in Madhya Pradesh are in deep crisis".

As the farmers' agitation spreads across various parts of India like wild fire, a recent development in Maharashtra has taken the nation by surprise.
