Mandsaur: Clearing the decks for June 6 public meeting of Congress president Rahul Gandhi at Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh, the district administration gave the permission for the said event on Tuesday.

The Congress is all set to launch its Assembly poll campaign from Mandsaur on June 6, where five farmers were killed in police firing during a farmers’ protest last year.

The Sub Divisional Magistrate of Malhargarh (Mandsaur) on Tuesday granted the permission for the rally, which will be organised at local college ground in Piplyamandi. The officer, however, tagged the permission with a list of 19 conditions.

The Congress party has planned a series of events on the anniversary of Mandsaur firing.

The farmers’ unions will hold indefinite stir beginning June 1 demanding loan waivers and better prices.

The agitation this time would be of indefinite nature and farmers say they will cut off supplies to cities until their demands are met.

To counter farmers’ anguish in Malwa region around Mandsaur, CM Shivraj Singh has already inducted Balkrishna Patidar, a prominent figure from Patidar community.

The CM has also included onion and garlic into Bhavantar Bhugtan Yojana, the crop price deficiency payment scheme which aims at making up for lack of MSP in mandis.

The two crops are integral part of farming economy in the Malwa region.
