Sir,

This is truly dis-heartening & knowing the Govt. machinery's speed of work I suggest a call should be made to the young India who enjoy a healthy econimical life today especially after the increase of FDI in India which has opened up endless opportunities of growth to come forward to form a FUND to support these affected farmers of our country. After all India has always been known as a land of Agriculture & farmer's.
