Adilabad: Farmers’ suicides are continuing in Telangana State despite the Rythu Bandhu and Rythu insurance schemes. As many as nine famers have committed suicide in August alone in the old Adilabad district alone. It is said that farmers were not getting crop loans and some of them took the extreme step as their cotton crop was attacked by pink bollworm.
