Rahul Gandhi Arrested: Curfew in Mandsaur

The BJP has also verbally attacked Rahul Gandhi and the Congress party.

When Madhya Pradesh denied entry to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, it was not without reason as the state government was aware of the impending crisis.

The local administration declared Vikram Cement factory's guest house a jail and placed Gandhi, Yadav, Kamal Nath, Sachin Pilot, Girija Vyas under arrest for breaching peace and the prohibitory orders, Hindustan Times reported.

Gandhi had planned to enter Madhya Pradesh from Rajasthan even though Superintendent of Police of Neemuch Manoj Kumar Singh had given a stern warning that Gandhi will be arrested if tried to enter the visit. He can only give bullets to them'.

The situation is getting out of hands for the Madhya Pradesh government as the protests are spreading to other districts - Neemuch, Ratlam, and Indore - where farmers are turning violent and setting public vehicles afire. It turned into a rally of sorts with Gandhi leading from the front. When police tried to push him back, he ran into a field nearby from where he was detained.

Singh maintained that while farmers will be free from debt immediately, the state will not have to bear the burden at one go as individual loans have different maturity periods. "The demands we have are not for the state government, it is for the central government", he added.

"I appeal to my farmer brothers to be calm. Only talks can end the differences", Chouhan said in a press statement here.

In Maharashtra, where farmers agitations have been part of the polity for decades now, there are several remnants of ertswhile organisations dotting the state. "I, myself, am a farmer, and I understand your grievances", he said.

Another farmer leader, Kedar Singh, claimed that the BKS backstabbed the poor farmers, and never raised two crucial demands of loan waiver and higher MSP.

India's agricultural sector grew by an average of 3% between 2008-2014, while India's economy overall grew at a rate of 7%, according to India's Ministry of Agriculture and Farmer's Welfare. "More people are being identified based on videos and pictures", Tripathi said. He appealed to the agitating farmers to ensure the nefarious designs of the anti-social elements do not prevail.

Asked about what provoked the police to fire, the home minister said it is being probed in the magisterial inquiry.

Meanwhile, Youth Congress workers organised a Rail Roko protest at Mumbai's Ghatkopar railway station over the farmers' protest. Curfew, imposed on Wednesday after escalating violence, was relaxed for two hours from 4 pm, as officials said the situation appeared to be improving. "There is the need to establish industries for making chips, ketchup and the like in the area", BJP vice-president Satya Pal Malik said.
