Farmer's suicide

18.03.2016 11:30 EDT
Over the last ****s more than 2 lakh farmers have committed suicide in the country due to debt related problem and an acute agrarian cr****.
A remote village, Amlasol, hit headlines when 5 villagers died due to starvation in 2005. The village consists of 85 families with a total of 400-500 adults and most of them are agricultural labourers. It is also worth mentioning that the starvation deaths in 2005 were not a new phenomenon, earlier also 20 starvation deaths were reported in this area. According to NCRB-2011, a total of 1246 farmers committed suicides in West Bengal in 2001 when the so called left was ruling in the state.
“My husband cultivated potatoes in 2 bighas of leased land. For this cultivation he took a loan of Rs.40,000. He had a good harvest. But the good harvest rather than bringing happiness, brought a curse to the farmers. Due to crash in prices the price of my husband’s crop was only worth Rs.8,000. Those were very difficult moments for him. We were left with nothing for our survival. He mortgaged my ornaments, but could not get enough money. Money lenders knocked on our door every day. The insult was unbearable. At last he killed himself.” She further added, “no one came to help the farmers.” Is the administration so insensitive?
In Bengal, though potato farmers reaped a rich harvest, the decision to ban inter-state movement of crops has restricted their market. While the agrarian sector of the state is clearly under severe distress, the authorities are on a total denial mode.
Another phenomenon that is emerging as dominant tendency in rural Bengal is the transfer of land from agriculture to non-agricultural purposes that also means recapturing of land forcefully by old owners at large. Kishan Sabha reported that the land to the tillers was realized through decades of struggle and now it is being reversed due to re-capturing of land by erstwhile landowners in many places. According to their estimates, over the last three and half months, land of 527 farmers amounting to 1000 acres of land has been snatched away. Additionally, 4700 patta-owners have been evicted from 2700 acres of land, 3710 bargadars have been evicted from 1587 acres of land while 14025 persons have been evicted from legally acquired land. Is the government conveniently sleeping?
Let me tell you what will happen post this. After this news becomes viral, a group of students/activists will come on the roads and protest! Will the government do something about it?
If you answered no, you know where the problem lies.

But now hopefully we have a government with good governance... Our present BJP Government understands the issues of our farmers & poor people... India soon will be a Superpower. http://akonvicted4u.peperonity.com/
