Mr Prime Minister, your words do not match your actions

In an impromptu debate in the Lok Sabha on the tragic suicide of farmer Gajendra Singh in New Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed pain and said that farmers cannot be left to fend for themselves. He admitted that the problem afflicting the farmers is old, deep-rooted and wide-spread. While the PM appeared to be concerned about farmers’ crisis, his government’s actions on the ground tell quite an opposite story. According to the National Crime Records Bureau, about 3 lakh farmers have killed themselves in India since 1995, with an average of 46 farmer suicides every day.
