New Delhi, August 6

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today criticised Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, accusing him of trying to stall Madhya Pradesh's efforts to get a geographical indication (GI) tag for its "famous" basmati rice. He said the move was "inspired by politics".

Chouhan said Madhya Pradesh had a recorded history of basmati production in 13 districts since 1908. "I condemn the letter written to the Prime Minister by the Congress government of Punjab in the matter of GI tagging of basmati rice of Madhya Pradesh and consider it politically inspired. I want to ask Capt Amarinder Singh what hostility he has with farmers of my state? It is not a matter of Madhya Pradesh or Punjab, it is a matter of farmers of the country and their livelihood," Chouhan said. — TNS
