The families of the four farmers, who were killed in the police firing in Mandsaur, met Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today and requested him to call off his fast.

The unrest in both states coincides with a larger resentment toward the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government at the Centre. Five ryots died on spot and one who was allegedly detained by the police, died later in the hospital.

He affirmed that he has always tried to do a lot for the farmers.

In Mumbai, a marathon meeting between farmers and a committee of senior ministers resulted in a truce after the government said it will immediately waive off loans of farmers with less than 5 acre of land. In the firing at least six farmers had lost their lives, following which massive protests had erupted across the state.

"Peace has been restored in MP and no case of violence has been reported on Saturday and Sunday". He said he would ensure farmers don't face amy problems. Authorities said the protesters resorted to arson and stone throwing. "Police cane charged and arrested us", claimed Congress leader Yogendra Chouhan. Chouhan will spend the night in a room behind the dais and resume his position at 11 a.m. on Sunday.

Rattled by the violence, the Madhya Pradesh government has announced a crop loan settlement scheme, which proposes waiving of interests of the cultivators who have defaulted on repayment of their loans. There was also no report of violence from other framers agitation affected areas.

He said, "People whose property & vehicles have been charred & vandalised will be provided with compensation".

Earlier, Gandhi sent his security personnel into a tizzy after he took a bike ride to reach Mandsaur to meet the families of the dead farmers.

The "indefinite fast", launched from the BHEL Dussehra Maidan in the state capital, was taken up amid violent protests in western Madhya Pradesh - especially Dewas and Mandsaur districts - over the last 10 days. A temporary residence has been set up, with heavy deployment of forces at the venue. "But, CM is performing a nautanki (drama) by sitting on a fast", Singh added.

Chouhan, under relentless opposition attack over the farmers' stir, broke his fast about a day-and-half into it with a glass of coconut water offered by former MP chief minister Kailash Joshi.
