13 more farmers commit suicide

Nagpur: Not much has changed for the farmers of Vidarbha. In the first week of the new year, 13 of them have committed suicide. As many 1,050 farmers ended their lives last year, the highest in any year so far in the region that is reeling under agrarian crisis of unprecedented proportion, according to farm activists.
The 13 farmers who embraced death till Sunday were identified as Devidas Dahat (village Anadoha , Wardha), Ramrao Khuje (Pipardara, Nagpur), Vishnu Satpute (Karanja, Wardha), Omprakash Bhoge (Dongarpavli, Amravati), Shankar Sawant ( S aw a r g a o n - K a n h o b a , Washim), Namdeo Bhirad (Vivra Akola), Ashok Bhoyar (Tuwardari, Washim), Sopan Darmothe (Kadmapur, Buldana), Sukhdev Chandranarayan (Devthana, Washim), Uddhav Gawali (Amani, Washim), Rajendra Jadhav (Sukathi, Yavatmal), Aasaram Savarkar (Muthori, Bhandara) and Maroti Kokulwar (Ra jolichak, Chandrapur).
According to Vidarbha Jan Andolan Samiti president Kishore Tiwari, thousands of cotton growers in the worst-affected six districts of Yavatmal, Wardha, Akola, Amravati, Washim and Buldana have been unable to offload their produce as 86 procurement centres of the cotton cooperative marketing federation which buys from them under the state's cotton purchase scheme, have been shut down. Tiwari claimed at least 22 centres including those in Wani, Ghatanji, Parwah have been closed by the federation officials claiming that they had exhausted storing space.
A federation official admitted that some centres were closed and said they would reopen on January 11.
"After the Wani police firing on December 5, the government was proactive in collecting cotton at the maximum support price of Rs 1990 per quintal. That continued for only few days. Now the farmers are left on their own. Taking advantage of sudden stoppage of procurement by federation centres, private traders have pegged down the rates and are paying less than Rs 1800 to farmers,'' said Tiwari. He was skeptical of the announcement of procurement centres' reopening before the Makar Sankranti holidays.
