FARMERS’ STIR IN MADHYA PRADESH : Self delusional edifice crumbles

THE farmer stir that claimed six lives in police firing in Mandsaur on June 5 may have petered out, but its aftereffects are still being felt in Madhya Pradesh politics and the government. Aftermath of the stir is manifest at many levels; in farmers’ smoldering anger; in the State government’s desperate attempts to buy their produce at the risk of huge loss to the exchequer; in the Bharatiya Janata Party’s damage control exercise; in resurgence of the faction-ridden Congress. In sum, the farmers’ fury has set the tone for contest between the two major political rivals for the assembly election due in November 2018.
