1,673 farmers were died by suicide since the YSRCP government came to power in Andhra Pradesh, alleges the Communist Party of India (CPI) state unit.

“Farmers in all the 26 districts in the State had lost a sizeable amount of crop due to excess rains and fake seeds, and 1,673 farmers were died by suicide since the YSRCP government came to power. Still, there was little response from the government,” said K. Ramakrishna, CPI state secretary.

Ramakrishna and other CPI leaders were arrested when they tried to barge into the Anantapur district Collector’s office to give a representation to the Collector on the farmers’ issues on Monday.

Ramakrishna was addressing the media after he and other party leaders were released on personal bonds.

The left party’s demonstration demanded the State government to rescue the farmers who had lost their crops because of fake seeds, untimely rains and lack of a decent minimum support price.
