Midnapore: Another Potato farmer commits suicide in Rengta village of Goaltore area of Midnapore district. It has been alleged that the farmer didn’t get proper price of his products from the market. On Friday he committed suicide at his home.
The farmer used to farm on 30 bighas of land. His family has alleged that he have committed suicide since he didn’t get proper price for his products.
The potato production has been good this year. The farmers are not getting proper price for the potatoes. They are selling the potatoes at low rates in the market. Thus they are not being able to clear the debts of the money lenders. Although the government has given them assurance, the problem has not been solved. So the farmers are taking suicidal steps.
