Bhopal: Amidst the claims that the ten days state-wide farmers’ agitation hardly had any effect on the society  IG Intelligence Makrand Deouskar informed that in last six days no formal agitation was reported and importantly no violent incident reported around the state.

While the president of Rashtriya Kisan Mazdoor Sangh Shiv Kumar Sharma informed Free Press , “Our agitation is fully successful, the police and the district administration are working to maintain the supplies leaving their work and now had became the vegetable vender and milk supplier”.

“The Union government will soon announce ‘good news’ for the farmer’s. The proposal had been prepared by the government,” he added. Deouskar added that the police are ready to face any situation and have registered three cases: one each in Mandsaur, Rajgarh and Betul have been registered against those who were responsible for blocking road or forcefully preventing farmers from reaching market or mandi with their produce.

At the beginning of the agitation the rates of the vegetables increased and the supplies reduced in whole sale market (mandi). Whether it is polices’ readiness or any other reason the rates of vegetables have come close to normal rates. Price of Tomatoes increased to Rs 40 per kilogram, now the rates has fallen back to Rs 20 per kilogram. The same is the case with the price of other vegetables.

On the political from though only four days are still to go in agitation but the state government have not paid any attention to the farmer’s demand. Whereas the Congress state president Kamal Nath had already made it clear that the Congress supports the farmers demand but it is not the part of any of the farmer’s association.

The farmer’s associations have called the 10 day agitation from June 1st o 10th, to press their four point demands. The farmer’s have decided that they will going to cut off their supplies including vegetables, fruits and milk to the cities, but in last six days no information about unavailability of the produces were reported.
