Vidisha: Farmers in Madhya Pradesh’s Vidisha on Sunday, August 30 held a protest to seek compensation for crop loss due to heavy rains by placing late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s portraits at the site saying that just as people want justice for the filmstar, they should support the cultivators.

Farmers at Jafarkhedi village in Vidisha, about eight kilometers from the district headquarters, staged the protest at their farms.

“The farmers staged a protest with the portraits of Sushant Singh Rajput at the site,” he said, adding that they also paid tribute to the late actor.

“During the protest, the farmers urged the media and people to stand up for them like the entire country is standing up for the justice to Rajput,” he said.

Another farmer, Sundar Singh, said that their families were sad due to the crop loss just as Sushant’s family was grief-stricken due to his death.

“Just as the government is making efforts to give justice to Sushant, it should work for the farmers in the same manner,” farmer Shivraj Piprodiya said.

“There are lakhs of farmers who lost their crops in Madhya Pradesh,” he added.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is currently probing the death case of Rajput, who was found hanging at his apartment in Mumbai on June 14.
