Prior to sitting on the indefinite fast, Mr Chouhan made it clear that he took the decision for restoration of peace and that it should not be viewed as a demonstration or agitation. “I would discharge official responsibilities from the Dusshera Ground itself.
I would also hold discussions with representatives of farmers from here,” he said. Mentioning about the recent incidents of violence in the state, the Chief Minister said that a handful of people are involved in these incidents. He said that he would end his fast only after peace was restored. (UNI)
