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.

The June 4 meeting between Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and the RSS-affiliated Bharatiya Kisan Sangh (BKS) and another farmer body, the Kisan Sena, was a case in point. She said that the cops had forcibly entered her house while chasing down the protesters from a farmers' rally on Friday at Phanda Kalan village near Sehore. "They should give up this "false fast" and get prepared to go on a "political exile", said Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala.

BJP general secretary Kailash Vijaywargiya claimed the farmers requested Chouhan to end his fast and even said they were ready to withdraw the agitation.

Farmers are selling potatoes and onions at throwaway prices in the state.

Mandsaur Superintendent of Police Manoj Kumar Singh had informed the curfew has been lifted from all the three police station areas of the Mandsaur city where it was imposed.

Maintaining that the government would be dealing with the miscreants with an iron fist, Chauhan said his fast is an attempt to ensure peace is restored in the state.

"As the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh for eleven-and- a-half years, my priority has been state's development and farmers' welfare", Chouhan said.


He said the party would aggressively raise the issues concerning farmers in parliament and seek loan waiver for them.

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

Madhya Pradesh government has constituted a one-member committee of retired HC judge JK Jain for enquiry of death of five farmers in firing in Mandsaur.

He affirmed that he has always tried to do a lot for the farmers.

"The state government stands firm with the farmers". Preparations began at BHEL Dussehra Maidan soon after Chouhan declared he will observe a fast.

Accusing the Congress party of firing from the shoulders of the farmers, Rao further said that grand old party is responsible for giving a violent turn to entire Mandsaur incident. First, the government said that the police didn't fire at farmers during the agitation.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has announced a compensation of Rs. 1 crore to the kin of those killed in the violence.
