Farmer attempts suicide in Balod amidst C’garh govt getting approval for farmers’ bonus

Even as the state government is patting its back after announcement of bonus for farmers, it appears the real suffering remains unaddressed. This is clear when another farmer, this time hailing from Sirsida village in Gunderdehi police station limits of Balod, attempted suicide by consuming pesticide. Sources claimed that farmer identified as Radhelal Dewangan was under severe debt and was even anxious about it. Presently he has been rushed to Durg district hospital but the fact that he committed suicide on a day when a special session of Chhattisgarh assembly is ongoing merely for provisioning of bonus for farmers is sure an irony.
