Hyderabad: Thirteen harried farmers had their lives ended across five districts of the Telangana on Sunday, probably the largest number in a single day.

While the Telangana government has been claiming to be taking every step to assist distressed farmers, this is one of the highest counts of farmers’ suicides on a single day, and comes on the heels of the government hiking the ex gratia from Rs 1.5 lakh to Rs 6 lakh.

 

Reacting to the suicides on Sunday, irrigation minister T. Harish Rao asked distressed farmers to approach the district administrations for help and promised that the government would take care of all farmers. He also said every case of alleged suicide would be probed and reports would be sent to the government.
