‘State govt. has failed to handle farm suicides’


Members of district unit of Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha and Hasiru Sene took out a procession and staged a dharna outside the Deputy Commissioner’s office here on Monday urging the State government to solve their various problems including suicide of farmers in the district.

The agitators took out a procession from KSRTC Bus Terminal which passed through the main streets of the city and culminated outside the Deputy Commissioner’s office.

Addressing the agitators, the Sangha’s State president Kodihalli Chandrashekhar alleged that the State government had failed to come out with a strategy to stop the increasing incidence of farmer suicides in the district.

Even after repeated appeals, the banks and other financial institutions have continued their harassment for repayment of the loans.
