Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar's car was stopped on May 18 by a group of farmers protesting against the centre's three farm laws. The incident took place when Tomar was going to inspect a government hospital in Madhya Pradesh's Sheopur district, part of his parliamentary constituency Morena. Visuals showed angry farmers raising slogans against the minister as they blocked the road to stop his car. His security personnel rushed to clear the road but failed to keep the protesters from approaching the minister's vehicle. "We have the right to stop you when the officers decline our requests to meet you," a protester said. Tomar's response was inaudible in the video clip. Police detained over a dozen protesters. "I'm always ready to meet and talk to farmers. Have already had 11 rounds of talks with them," Tomar told reporters later.
