Ensure that those responsible for their killing are brought to book, farmers’ families demand

Madhya Pradesh BJP president Nandkumar Singh Chauhan on Saturday said the families of farmers killed in Mandsaur violence met Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in Bhopal and urged him to call off his fast.

The BJP leader said the relatives of four of the five farmers also asked the Chief Minister to ensure that those responsible for the killing are brought to book.

Mr. Chouhan on June 10 began his indefinite fast at BHEL’s Dussehra ground in Bhopal for restoration of peace in the State, where farmers have resorted to violence during their ongoing stir for various demands, including a complete loan waiver.
