On the contrary, data suggests otherwise. 11,000 farmers have committed suicide in the state in 9 years, as per MP Crime Records Bureau. There were 1090 suicides in agri-sector in 2013, 1198 in 2014, 1290 in 2015 and 1321 in 2016. What’s worse is that it’s the same BJP government that shot at protesting farmers in Mandsaur which killed 6 farmers.
