Telangana suicide

Nothing is more shameful for any society or country when its farmers are left with no other option but to take their own lives with the hope that their families are well compensated by the government after they are gone. And Telangana is certainly not far behind. There have been increasing cases of farmer suicides in the State. The government has put the figure at 430 ever since it came to power last year June. The Opposition says the Government is downplaying it and the actual figure is as high as 1200 and the National Crime Bureau has pegged it at 898 farmer suicides in this last one and a half years. Whatever may be the figure what is important is that political parties should leave aside their differences and come together to address this issue in order to help out the farmers and give them the confidence.
