Earlier yesterday, Chouhan, who began his indefinite hunger strike, asserted that he would not let the state engulf in violence and would ensure that peace returns. Farmer leaders, however, put the number of deaths at eight. "We haven't seen any chief minister keeping a fast for poor farmers", a farmer told ANI.

The chief minister would hold talks with farmers on Sunday as well.

The Opposition party, however, dismissed the charge and dubbed Chouhan's fast as "nautanki".

Meanwhile, a video has also surfaced wherein a Congress MLA from Madhya Pradesh has caught on camera purportedly inciting party workers and farmers to burn down a police station. "They said "Buddhi (old woman), you ordered that trucks be set on fire, you set the place ablaze", she said. "We will think about it and discuss it and thereafter, we will definitely take a decision in the interest of farmers", Chouhan said.

"Any purchase of farm produce below the MSP declared by the Centre would be considered a criminal act in MP", Chouhan told a gathering at BHEL's Dussehra Maidan here, the venue of his fast.
