Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has attacked Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and senior Congress leader and former MP chief minister Kamal Nath on the issue of the new farming laws and the ongoing protests.

Chauhan has said that the Congress leaders call the Bharatiya Janata Party leaders "anti farmer", but they themselves are responsible for burdening the farmers with interests on loans.

Chouhan added that we (his party) will remove the burden from the heads of farmers.

Chouhan was speaking in Ujjain. He added that Rahul Gandhi had said in Madhya Pradesh that their government will make the farmers debt free within 10 days of coming to power, however, the situation took such a shape that even those farmers who would repay loans on regular terms became defaulters.

Chouhan also said that those people who have no link with agriculture are opposing Prime minister Narendra Modi on the new farm laws.
