Mandsaur, June 6: Parents of Abhishek Patidar, who died during Mandsaur farmers’ protest last year, on Wednesday alleged that the Sub-Divisional Magistrate asked them not to meet Congress President Rahul Gandhi.

Speaking to news agency ANI, Mandsaur victim’s family said ” SDM (Sub-Divisional Magistrate) called our other son & asked who among us will meet Rahul Gandhi when my son told him that my parents are going,SDM said ask them to not meet Rahul Gandhi’.

Gandhi is scheduled to address a farmers’ rally in Mandsaur district of Madhya Pradesh on Wednesday — the day seven peasants had lost their lives in police firing.

He will also meet family members of the farmers killed in police firing during an agitation.

The anniversary of the Mandsaur firing comes amid a countrywide 10-day strike by farmers demanding a complete loan waiver, implementation of recommendations of Swaminathan Commission and better remuneration for produce.
