  • Farmers' mood to impact result

    It will be a challenge for the Shivraj Singh Chouhan's government to address farmers' distress. The memory of Mandsaur has united farmer movements across the state.

    The Bhavantar Bhugtan Yojana, which compensates the farmer with the 'bhavantar' or the difference in price between the MSP and the market price has failed to reach farmers in all districts. 

    At New Delhi's Jantar Mantar last year, no less than 500 farmers from Madhya Pradesh showed up to stage an agitation against the government. Madhya Pradesh has been winning the Krishi Karman award since five years but an increase in production doesn't mean an increase in farmer's income.

    There's a strong trader lobby that eats into the farmer's share. Farmers are three-fourths of the state and their mood will severely impact the electoral outcome.

  • Desperate times, desperate measures for BJP

    The Shivraj Singh Chouhan government will present the state’s budget in the state Assembly on Wednesday. State finance minister Jayant Kumar Malaiya will present the budget in Bhopal. He is expected to redress the state farmers' grievances by announcing sops for them during the budget.

    The government announced allocation of Rs 3000 crore for Bhavantar Yojna, Rs 2000 crore for farmers' insurance and Rs 3650 crore for Krishi Sammridhi Yojna.

    This budget is the last one for Chouhan government ahead of Assembly polls this year. The chief minister is desperately trying to win over the farmers as Congress is continuously attacking his government over the agrarian crisis in the state.

  • Bypolls a litmus test for BJP

    The Kolaras and Mungaoli bypolls are being seen as the semi-final match for both the ruling BJP and Opposition Congress ahead of the Assembly elections by year-end. The results of the bypolls will act as a litmus test for both the parties and also make BJP and Congress leaders aware of the ground realities in Madhya Pradesh.

    The results will also reveal the level of farmers' distress in the state. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has been trying to address the issue with the launch of Bhavantar Yojna, a scheme to compensate farmers by paying the 'difference' between the MSP and the market price of crops. But, farmers are unhappy with the scheme as only 6.4 percent of them have benefited from it.

    Bypolls major challenge for Shivraj Singh Chouhan

    Kolaras and Mungaloi bypolls have posed a major challenge for the chief minister, writes Debobrat Ghose for Firstpost. Farmer distress might prove to be a major deterrent for the BJP government. The much-hyped ‘Bhavantar Yojna’—the government scheme meant to compensate farmers—has failed to cut ice among farmers.

    There is a palpable tension among the ruling BJP. As a result, Chouhan made campaign trips every alternate day, while the entire BJP organisational apparatus hit battleground Kolaras and Mungaoli.
