Third debt-ridden farmer commits suicide in Madhya Pradesh, this time in JM Scindia’s constituency

The Congress governments in both Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan are facing severe outrage from the farmers within weeks of their government formation, as both governments in the respective states had created a crisis by mismanaging the supply of urea.

The false promise of loan-waiver by the Congress party seems to have taken yet another life of a farmer in Madhya Pradesh, as a debt-ridden farmer belonging to Guna district of Madhya Pradesh has ended his life on Monday by consuming insecticide.

According to the reports, Nagji Bheel of Mandikheda village had taken a loan of Rs 40,000 and was asked to repay Rs 70,000 to get his mortgaged land back. The family of the deceased said that he consumed the poison after failing to repay the farm loan.

Bhaskar Lakshkar, District Collector has ordered an investigation probe and said that the district administration has provided a sum of Rs.15,000 as a relief to Bheel’s family. Jyotiraditya Scindia, MP from Guna has asked the DC to visit the farmer’s family and provide necessary support. The senior Congress leader also requested farmers to avail loans only from authorised banks.

This is the third incident of farmers committing suicide in the state of Madhya Pradesh as earlier two farmers had ended their lives after the newly elected Congress government headed by Kamal Nath failed to clear their farm loans. A farmer belonging to Khandwa, Madhya Pradesh who had taken a loan of Rs.3 lakh for the agricultural purpose had committed suicide after he found that he was ‘ineligible’ for loan waive off.

Prem Narayan Raghuvanshi, a 65-year-old farmer committed suicide after getting calls from the bank regarding repayment of loans and had said Raghuvanshi that they are yet to receive instructions to waive-off his loans. Depressed, he consumed poison and committed suicide.

The Congress soon after assuming power in Madhya Pradesh had set in new conditions to waive-off farms loans contrary to its earlier promise of unconditional loan waiver. It brought in new conditions stating that anybody who had taken the loan after March 31st 2018 would not be eligible, as per the new government’s order.

One of the new conditions set up by the Kamal Nath government to sanction the so-called farmer loan waiver in Madhya Pradesh is an upper ceiling of Rs 2 lakh as the maximum amount up to which a farmer can have his loan waived off.

Addition to this, the Congress governments in both Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan are facing severe outrage from the farmers within weeks of their government formation, as both governments in the respective states had created a crisis by mismanaging the supply of urea.

Rahul Gandhi led Congress which came to power in various states promising several sops of loan waivers, high MSP to the farmers seems to have started on a very bad note. The Congress-JDS government in Karnataka has completely failed in waiving off farm loans which have resulted in two deaths of the farmers, while many farmers have also received repayment notices from the banks.
