Press Trust of India  |  Jaipur 

Ahead of Vasundhra Raje's Gaurav in division, chief slammed her, saying farmers in the division have committed suicide due to low garlic prices and the government's apathy towards the issue.

He said garlic was sold for Rs 2 per kg and seven farmers committed suicide in the last few days because they could not get reasonable price for their crops.

"After their suicide, the government started procuring garlic but only 90,000 ton out of 8 lakh ton was procured," he told reporters here.

Raje's Gaurav is scheduled to begin in division on Friday.
