Vidarbha Jan Andolan Samiti (VJAS) has urged Indian prime minister Dr.Manmohan Singhji have review to failure of relief package on all front due complete apathy of administration and poor implementation of all scheme under relief package. Huge corruption and political interference has made farmer’s condition in vidarbha more hostile as all the time feed back provided by the state administration was misleading, kishor tiwari added.

Now it’s urgent need of the hour to restore rural social and civil system in vidarbha as his Rs.3750/- crore relief package has failed to stop on going farm suicides in vidarbha as more than 1132 farmers mostly debt trapped cotton farmers who are in distress due economic crisis have committed suicide since 1ST July -2007Kishor Tiwari VJAS leader informed in a press release today.

VJAS asked Indian prime minister to arrnge the detail investigation in to fact that now it’s after one year after PM visit to west vidarbha to under stand the Agrarian crisis in which more than 5000 farmers suicides reported since 2002 ,In fact before the visit of Indian prime minister , Dr.S.W.Swaminathan as Chairman of National Commission for farmers NCF visited vidarbha in the month October-2005 then in the months of march-2006 team of expert from Planning Commission visited the vidarbha ,vidarbha farm crisis is the part of Indian Agararian crisis in which farmers are killing themselves and as per official record since 1995 more than 1,00,000(one lac)farmers mostly cotton growers or coffee growers are the main victims of economical collapse of rural system after we opted open trade and free economy ,your vidarbha visit was part of relief exercise to address this national issue of farmers suicides and experts have already prepared the relief package before PM visit to vidarbha and announcement of package on 1st July 2006 ,VJAS protested the relief package as farmersr main demand of debt waiver and income base solution for the cash crop of the cotton farmers was missing resulting complete failure of package after one year.

FARMERS WANTS RURAL SYSTEM RESTORATION

VJAS has urged indian prime minister that unless income package is given to vidarbha farmer nothing will change hende relief of credit and cost front is need as drop in income and sudden increase in input cost of cultivation couple with high cost being paid to health care ,education and maintaining daily livelihood has very difficult to farming society. farmers needs restoration civil and social system in order that they need profitable farming couple with free health care and education. VJAS urged Prime Minister that to look in to these aspects and arrange to provide the relief solutions based on the policy changes to protect rural economy of west vidarbha, kishor tiwari said.

Dear Sir,

it very shameful for the country that farmers are committing suicides in such large nos and policymakers and decision makers are wathing it gleefully.

We at karnataka are opposing creation of a second capital at Belgaum citing the examle of Maharashtra where despite having a second capital at Nagpur, region is witnessing such terrifying high rate of suicides. Interestingly, politicians here claim that creating a second capital at huge cost will bring prosparity to the region ( Norh Karnataka ).

Regards and best wishes
