Three days ago, a farmer named Pratap Vegal committed suicide by consuming pesticide. Probe revealed that the man took his own life as he was struggling financially. However, the villagers claimed that the man ended his life due to crop failure.

These farmer suicides took place while there was a massive uproar in the country regarding the passing of two crucial farm bills in the Rajya Sabha. Over two dozen farmer organisations extended their support to ‘Bharat Bandh’ and announced that they would continue to protest against the bills on September 25 as well.
