‘Govt. is til unmoved even supreme court social bench headed by justice Chief Justice H L Dattu an also comprising Justices A K Sikri and R K Agrawal issued notice to Centre, Ministry of Agriculture and Maharashtra Government seeking their responses on the vidarbha agrarian issues asking Govt. to clear stand on issue of immediate relief of Rs 25,000 per hectare of land from Maharashtra Government to the drought-hit farmer families along with a complete or reasonable waiver of crop loans to farmers and to Provide them 100-day wage subsidy under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) but both central and state Govt. failed to take serious note of apex court on plight of dying farmers now as NHRC has considered in mass genocide of agrarian community as freezing of human rights will have some impact to sensitize the issue which is mostly related to policies of cost and banking credit and promotion of wrong cash crop by states in dry land of vidarbha forcing them tp kill themselves ‘Tiwari said .
