THE Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU), in a statement issued on June 7, has strongly condemned the police firing on farmers in two places in Mandsaur district in the BJP ruled Madhya Pradesh. The farmers were demanding remunerative prices for their produce and debt waiver, which the state government had earlier promised but failed to implement. Six farmers were killed in the firing and several more were seriously injured.
