Farmer Commits Suicide In Rajasthan, Government Denies Agricultural Distress
While rains this season were generous on Rajasthan, at 105 per cent the expected level, not all of the state was as lucky. Nine districts, especially in east and north Rajasthan, have suffered as the monsoon has been at 45 per cent deficit. This week a farmer in Rajasthan's Jhunjhunu committed suicide after his Bajra crop withered in his field. It was the ninth farmer suicide this year due.
