Farmer ends life due to crop failure in Madhya Pradesh

Farmers continue to reel in severe economic hardships in the state due to crop failure and lack of proper action on part of the district administration.

On Tuesday a farmer committed suicide in Tendukheda block in Damoh. The farmer Nandkishor Yadav, 30, committed suicide by hanging himself in Harrai village.

He was under heavy debt along with other farmers. The farmers had approached the district collection and informed him about the crop failure in the region.

As a result of failure of rabi crop, farmers lost money. Nandkishor's brother Raja Ram said that his brother had sowed crop on 15 acres of land but the entire crop was affected by pest and destroyed. Depressed due to the huge loss, Nandkishor consumed pensticide and killed himself.
