    Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of running a government for the "super rich" and slammed his government for the "inordinate urgency" for bringing the Land Acquisition Ordinance hurting the farmers. Kejriwal launched a major political attack on Modi, the first after his landslide victory in the Delhi Assembly polls in February, at a farmers rally here, but the event was marred by the suicide of a farmer from Rajasthan, who hanged himself from a tree in front of the chief minister. He alleged that the central government has "betrayed" the trust of the farmers on whose votes the BJP came to power. (Wednesday, April 22, 2015) (Image: PTI)

  • Farmer suicide

    Farmers who commit suicide are cowards, says BJP minister, draws flak from Rahul Gandhi

    Haryana Agriculture Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader O P Dhankar has stoked a controversy with insensitive remarks that farmers who commit suicide are “cowards” and “criminals”, drawing severe flak from the Opposition with Rahul Gandhi raking it up in Parliament today. “Committing suicide is a crime, according to Indian law. Any person who commits suicide escapes from his responsibilities and leaves the burden on his wife and innocent children and such people are cowards,” Dhankar, who earlier headed the BJP’s Kisan Cell, said yesterday. While farmers were “crying with pain in their hearts”, the Haryana Minister was calling them “cowards”, Rahul Gandhi said amidst a chorus of “shame, shame” from the Opposition benches.
