I'm not emotionless: MP CM begins indefinite fast for peace amid farmers

MP CM Chouhan to begin fast

A cooperative bank in the state has sent notices to almost 3,000 farmers, threatening legal action if they don't clear loan dues. More agricultural income means economic revival of farmers. The farmers also clarified that if the government's promises are not implemented by July 24, the day when the monsoon session of the state assembly begins, the agitation will resume.

Farmers are struggling hard to meet their input expenses due to a drop in prices of agriculture produce, which agricultural experts attribute to the rising cost of farming, the haphazard use of fertlisers, and failed government policies over the years.

The Congress leader also said that demonetisation has broken the cash-cycle the farmer had with the commission agents and it will take some time for things to normalise. "They want people to move out of agriculture".

The loan waiver plan was chalked out by Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis last week, who had said the government was willing to write off up to 305 billion rupees ($4.75 billion) in defaulted loans held by farmers.

The government had also assured that moong and tuar will be procured from farmers from June 10 at minimum support price.

He also criticised the Centre for leaving the farm loan waiver to the states and demanded that it should announce a uniform farm loan waiver from the Central funds to all states which are demanding the same.

"This is nothing but hypocrisy", he added saying: "The farmers of the country has been mercilessly backstabbed by the callous and insensitive attitude of the BJP government".

As many as eight farmer unions, including the Bhartiya Kisan Union (BKU) staged protest in 17 out of 25 districts in Punjab.
