Right now, farmers across two states – Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh – are protesting for better prices for their produce and for loan waivers as they are burdened by debt leading to suicides.

The Maharashtra protests have led to a state-wide bandh while the protests in MP took a violent turn today and four protestors were shot dead.
