Shivraj Singh Chouhan in Mandsaur: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Tuesday visited violence-hit Mandsaur, and handed over cheques of Rs 1 crore each to the families of farmers who were killed during Madhya Pradesh violence, Press Trust of India reported. Chouhan, along with wife Sadhna, reached Mandsaur and went straight to Badwan village to meet the kin of Ghanshyam Dhakad, who was allegedly killed in police firing. Earlier, in a quick disbursement of funds, the Madhya Pradesh government on Tuesday sanctioned a financial aid of Rs 1 crore each to the families of six farmers killed during a protest. It was alleged that while five of them were killed in police firing, one was beaten up in police custody and succumbed thereafter. Chouhan further assured farmers that all possible attempts for the growth of the farmers will be made in the state. “Making all possible attempts to maintain peace and to ensure the growth of our farmers,” Chouhan said. The visit came just a day after Congress’ Madhya Pradesh heavyweight Jyotiraditya Scindia and Gujarat’s Patel quota stir spearhead Hardik Patel were not allowed to enter the city.

The visit gains much significance as three more farmers, despite assurances from the government, reportedly committed suicide on Tuesday. The farmers allegedly committed suicide due to indebtedness and one of them belonged to Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s home district Sehore.

Meanwhile, Scindia is slated to sit on a ‘satyagraha’ at the Dusserah maidan in Bhopal, the state capital, to protest the killing of farmers. Chouhan, who came under a severe attack from the opposition following the agrarian unrest, had called off his indefinite hunger strike on Sunday, 28 hours after he had launched it, claiming that peace had been restored at Mandsaur.
