Uttar Pradesh: Debt-ridden farmer commits suicide in Agra

Agra, March 21: A debt-ridden farmer on Tuesday committed suicide after he could not bear the pressure of loan and his daughter’s marriage.

Kanchan Singh from Shamshabad owed Rs 5 lakh to a bank, two lakh to lenders, and had an immense pressure of marrying his daughter off the next month, ANI reported citing late farmer’s son as saying.

According to the son, he also approached the Central government and was clueless about his next action.

Farmers suicide, which is one of the major issues being witnessed by the country, reveals deeply-rooted tenacious causes such as lack of irrigation, fragmentation of land, unsuitability of seeds and inadequate sources of credit.
