Shivraj Singh Chouhan begins fast to resolve Madhya Pradesh farmers’ crisis


.........BHOPAL: Amid farmers' stir which has spread to his home district Sehore on Friday, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan begins indefinite fast in state capital Bhopal for the restoration of peace. “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. I invite all those indulging in the violent stir to start a dialogue with us there,” Chouhan said on Friday. “I have been appealing to the protesters for peace as those pelting the stones and those giving them the stones are all our own. Only dialogue can resolve the crisis. Anyone who wants to talk to the government in peace is welcome to come to the Dussehra ground on Saturday,” the chief minister added.The CM’s call for dialogue was welcomed by the Rashtriya Kisan Mazdoor Sangh (RKMS), the farmers body, which has been spearheading the ten-days long stir since June 1. “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. However, the opposition Congress dubbed the CM’s invite and politics of fast as drama. “If he is so serious about talking with the farmers, why did he wait for nine long days and the deaths of six farmers in Mandsaur?” asked MP Congress president Arun Yadav. Earlier, the leader of opposition in the state assembly Ajay Singh and the MP Congress chief Arun Yadav had demanded a special session of the assembly on the farmers issue. The chief whip of the opposition party Ramniwas Rawat has already written a letter to the state governor on Thursday, requesting to convene the special session.
