Smt.Sonia Gandhi ‘Vidarbha’ visit marks 'Four  farmers suicides' 

NAGPUR: 22nd November 2013

Eve of visit of  Congress President Sonia Gandhi will launch expansion of a pro-poor health scheme named after former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, here on November 21 along with Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar and other ministers from the Centre has been marked with another shocker of four more distressed debt trapped vidarbha farmers suicides reports  reaching Nagpur, they are

1.Vasram Rathode   of Bothbodan in Yavatmal(24TH Suicide in Village)
2.Suresh Ambarvate of Nandori  in Wardha
3.Vinod Mahakalkarof Lonar in Wardha
4. Sanjay Gawande of Waghoda in Washim

Taking toll to 698 inyear 2013 ,Kishore Tiwari of Vidarbha Janandolan Samiti (VJAS) informed today, urging Indian Govt. provide aid to tackle very pathetic situation as state Govt. failed to give any relief till date to dying farming community which is crying for food, medicine and relief aid .

”Cong. Party has spent more than Rs.30 million  for arranging public for this massive  public rally in which Soniaji will launch the health care scheme better known as 'Rajiv Gandhi Jeevandayaini Yojna', a flagship programme of the Congress-led UPA government, but same time  even after numbers of expert committee recommendation failed to give free health service to extremely distressed farmer’s families where critical illness is main cause of agrarian crisis forcing farmers to commit suicide even under present scheme west vidarbha cotton farmers will not  covered as they are not entitled for red-green ration cards hence we are urging the state Govt. to extend RGJY to all distressed and debt trapped vidarbha farmers in order to stop on the going farm suicide spiral” Tiwari

The visit of UPA convener to cash crop cotton and soybean now sudden slash in procurement prices of both cotton   and soybean by the cartel of traders on the ground of quality of rain touch cotton and soybean is too poor to give minimum support price (MSP) and there is not state intervention of procurement @ MSP has restarted farm suicides spiral in west  vidarbha as six more farmers suicides reported in last 48 hours identified as

Both bodan (Yavatmal) in the village where all expert committees and cong. Vice president Rahul Gandhi, visited since 2006 has reported 24th farm suicide when dry land farmer Vasram Bhavsing Rathode committed suicide having lost cotton crop in 5 acre land owing debt more than Rs.2 lakh ,Vasram Rathode is not alone  the entire region in facing complete crop failure and till date there no relief from Govt. informed village sarpanch of Both bodan Balasaheb Chavan (09922661795) informed from Govt. medical college hospital where he brought dead body of diseased farmers .   
As all announcements are turning out to be hoax for example in August Maharashtra Chief Minister announced Rs.2000 crore relief aid but till date nothing has been released more over local administration is shamelessly is Rs.80 to Rs.100 relief cheque  rubbing the salt on the wounds of dying farmers who lost complete crop, home and cattle as there are more than 3 million  flood effected farmers and others hence it is obvious  this aid is peanut hence vidarbha farmers  are demanding higher support price for cotton and soybean i.e. @ Rs.6000/ quintal and @5000/quintal, ” Bothbodan Sarpanch chavan added

Vidarbha where more than million acres of land has been eroded and crop lost amounting more than Rs.20,000 crore but announced relief by centre and state for Vidarbha is merge Rs.2800 crore which is too less to repair damaged  roads and bridges on a large scale and need urgent repairs and will need more money for property damage compensation  hence massive crop damages are likely to ignored  as final assessment report  of state govt. has not been submitted and farmers are crying for help, Kishor Tiwari said  

Earlier too when Indian Prime Minister Dr.Manmohan Singh visited vidarbha on 1st July 2006 for announcing vidarbha relief package of Rs.3750 and he told the farm widows that his visit to give healing touch to distressed farmers  but  all promises given by him went in vain  and complete relief package followed by farm loan waiver failed to address the farm suicide issue failed miserably and his so called ‘Healing Touch’ has given more pain and despair now Indian Agriculture minister Sharad Pawar is on three day “Farm suicide tourism”  with same slogan that his tour is not political one and he is visiting flood hit region to give healing touch to dying farmers but farmers are requesting him not to rub the salt to their wounds by giving to promises and creating rosy picture as it’s trigger more suicide as when PM promise of farm credit ,direct aid and restoration to  sustainable agriculture and livelihood of agrarian community turned to be hoax, Tiwari said. ,
