Farmer protest in Jaipur turns violent police resort to lathi charge
| Friday | 1st June, 2018
Jaipur: Police resorted to lathicharge after clashes erupted with protesting farmers here on Friday.
The farmers in Jaipur, like others in states like Punjab and Madhya Pradesh, have been threatening to cut supplies unless their demands are met.
Farmers in several states have been demanding - among other things - a minimum support price (MSP) for their crops and loan waivers.
In Jaipur, several farmers dumped vegetables and fruits, and poured milk on the streets.
This is likely to have an impact on states like Rajasthan, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.
