Two farmers in Madhya Pradesh have reportedly committed suicide within a week of the new government's announcement of a massive farm loan waiver promised by the Congress ahead of the assembly polls in the state. While one of the farmers consumed poison and died at a private hospital today, the second farmer had hanged himself on Saturday. Their families say that the benefit didn't reach them and increasing pressure from the banks forced them to take the extreme step.
