Rahul Gandhi blames NDA government for rise in cases of farmer suicides

Bargarh, Sep 10 (ANI): Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday accused the NDA regime at the Centre of favouring a few industrialists and ignoring farmers, some of whom had committed suicide because of their inability to clear their debts or due to crop failure. Interacting with the families of farmers who had committed suicide and other farming community representatives in Bargarh, Odisha, Gandhi said that there has been notable rise in the cases of farmer suicides during the regime of NDA government.

Gandhi also described the Land Reorganisation Bill being introduced in Parliament by the ruling NDA as "anti-farmer". Land acquisition in India is governed by the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013 and which came into force from January 1, 2014.
