Modi responsible for my death, farmer leaves note before suicide



A 45-year-old farmer committed suicide by jumping into a pond in the Pune district, Maharashtra, leaving a note that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is responsible for his death.

The police have identified the deceased as Dashrath Lakshman Kedari from the Wadgaon Anand village in the Junnar taluka. Police also recovered a suicide note written by Kedari in which he talked about not getting minimum support price (MSP) for crops and harassment at the hands of loan recovery agents.

In the handwritten note, Kedari wrote, “We have no money, moneylenders are not ready to wait. What should we do? We can’t even afford to take onions to the market. —KMS
