On Friday, the 68th day of the Naya Raipur- affected farmers’ agitation, 68-year-old farmer Siyaram Patel died. The agitating farmers were marching on foot from the Naya Raipur Atal Municipal Development Authority headquarters complex towards Mantralaya. Meanwhile, when the police stopped, the farmers sat on a dharna in the sun under the open sky. Meanwhile, 68-year- old farmer Siyaram Patel’s health deteriorated and he fell unconscious. He was taken to the hospital for treatment, where doctors declared him brought dead.

Farmers from 27 villages, which fall in Nava Raipur Atal Nagar in Raipur district, have been protesting under the banner of Nayi Rajdhani Priyojna Prabhavit Kisan Kalyan Samiti (NRPPKKS) since January with various demands, including better rehabilitation and compensation. The state government had last month accepted six out of eight demands of the protesters. Legal advice is being sought on the other two, an official said.

Meanwhile, the Kisan Morcha has demanded 1 crore compensation to the family of the deceased farmer. Here, the BJP Kisan Morcha and Andolan Samiti have also demanded a compensation of Rs 1 crore rupees. If the demand is not fulfilled, BJP Kisan Morcha will agitate in the entire state. BJP says that the Congress government can give 50 lakh rupees each on the death of farmers in UP, then why not in their own state. However, Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel has condoled the death of the farmer and announced a compensation of Rs 4 lakh for his family.
