Centre insensitive towards farmers` plight in MP: Chouhan
Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Thursday accused the Central government of being insensitive towards the plight of farmers whose crops are affected by untimely rains and hailstorm recently.
Chouhan said in a tweet that he was extremely worried due to untimely rains and
hailstorm in many parts of the state and added that he was undertaking an extensive survey to estimate the loss caused to crops.
"Farmers are being forced to sell (their produce) at rates which are 20 to 30 per cent lower than the MSP (minimum support price)...My personal appeal to both Prime minister and Finance minister has fallen on deaf ears," Chouhan said.
"Even when crop like gram is coming to the market, the Centre is not providing support to give Minimum Suppost Price (MSP) of Rs 3100 as declared by it," he said.
