6 farmers end life in six and half months: Bargarh district’s telling woes…

Farm distress takes another farmer's life in Bargarh. Failure in paddy procurement system and lack of a supportive govt forced debt ridden Haripal Budhia (45) to end life. The total toll of farmers heads reaches to 6 just in six and half months.

They marketed Hirakud canals as carriers of prosperity. Yes they are true, the Hirakud reservoir now brings prosperity to Aluminium industries, Coal fired Power Plants and other factories. The farmers are left to suffer!
