4 debt-ridden farmers end life in MP in a week
BHOPAL/KOTA: Even as BJP makes tall claims about doing everything to improve their lot, farmers in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan — both BJP-ruled states — continue to commit suicide. While four debt-ridden farmers have ended lives in MP in the last one week, Rajasthan has seen three such cases since April.
In MP, during the same week, three more farmers died while standing in queues outside mandis to sell their harvest. Betul in MP was rocked by two farmer suicides on Friday and Saturday. The third case was reported from Chhatarpur, which is reeling from drought, and the fourth happened in Tikamgarh. In all four cases, farmers were reportedly under debt.
In Rajasthan, farmers are committing suicide because of problem of plenty. There is a bumper garlic crop for which they are not getting the right price. This is driving them to suicide. MP Kisan Morcha leader ousted for abusing farmers:
The state BJP on Saturday expelled member of its Kisan Morcha Hakam Singh Anjana from the party after a viral video showed him making derogatory remarks against farmers.

Suicide is a disease and provocation is a crime. Attempt for suicide requires treatment and those provoking for it must be punished.

MP is going to polls this year. so expect to see many more such articles. If the media has to be taken seriously then they should publish the achievements of the govt and then debate on what they could have done better.
