Farmer’s Suicides due to Starvation, Poverty & Indebtedness

Posted by Sandeep Shelke on January 22nd, 2010

Expressing serious concern over the increasing incidents of suicide by farmers due to starvation, poverty and other reasons, the Supreme Court issued directive to Centre to come out with “mirco-level steps to prevent such suicides”. This directive came in on Monday, 18 Jan, 2010.

Take micro-level steps to prevent farmers’ suicides: SC

What a tragedy, court needs to direct, so called socialists and social workers, about the farmers problems…

The Chief Justice told the counsel the problem differed from area to area.  “It needs to be addressed at the local level. Farmers often go to money-lenders as they give money without security. You tell us what the schemes are or packages you have for farmers, whether these schemes reach the farmers, and how far it has reduced indebtedness. You should also collect the latest data,” he said….

Why don’t these politicians, who go to farmers and labors to seek their votes, understand the pain farmers suffer? Or is it that they don’t want to acknowledge? The local representatives are so engraved in selfish and corrupt acts that they turned diff and dumb towards the problems of common man. These are the same selfish, greedy creatures who become angels and god/goddess in election days.

The CJI also asked the petitioner to come out with suggestions so that the court could give some positive directions to the government on the next date of hearing after six weeks….

Why is government elected?  Is this what for people elected government? I suspect the government has re-elected itself (May be EVM scam). Because as I see this government has failed in each aspect.

No security, No law, No food, Farmers & students are committing suicide. Textile mill workers have been fighting for 28 years to get their rights but no success. Vidharbha(farmer suicide epicenter) economic/developmental backlog of 1994 is still not completed (expected to complete by 2012). No developments on food, water crisis.

“All is well, because we don’t care”

Are they, elected representatives, unable to handle the issues? If that is the case then they have no right to stay in power.  Please, pave way to able and efficient leadership..

No channel, newspaper talk about such issues. (Who owns these media houses?)

No expert is needed to answer these questions. It is just that we have week opposition party and sleeping citizens..

जय भारत!

    It took the Supreme Court to get Delhi to put up homeless night shelters; maybe they can do something about this problem also. It should not have to come to this. As I’ve written elsewhere, this is not a new problem!

    @Hariji,
    First of all thank you for your comment.
    Absolutely SC will take Delhi to the task. But this shouldn’t have come this way.
    As I’ve written elsewhere, this is not a new problem!
    I think that is the problem which causes ignorance. We always say that “Ye aisa hi hai!”, “Chalarata rahega!”, “Sab janate hai”. But somewhere someone has to come forward and challenge the system for better life.
    There are people now, who are willing to bring the change and I’m optimistic that things will change. It is just that we Bharatiya needs to be more aware and people like us can take the task to completion.
