"Chouhan's six-day visit to Russia from today stands cancelled," said SK Mishra, principal secretary to the Chief Minister.
The Chief Minister's visit was aimed at branding and marketing Madhya Pradesh in Russia primarily to attract investments, Mr Mishra told PTI today.
The development assumes significance as it has come at a time when Congress is gunning for Mr Chouhan's head and backing the farmers who are angry at the state government.
The satyagraha started in Bhopal and ended in Dhar yesterday.
Farmers agitation in Madhya Pradesh had turned violent and police firing had left five farmers dead and six injured on June 6 in Mandsaur district.
