Govt should help farmers with crop insurance to stop increasing suicides...

Aditya Srivastava from Mahoba in MP is telling us that number of farmers committing suicide is increasing every year in Bundelkhand region. He says Govt should help farmers with crop insurance as most suicides are happening because farmers are unable to pay back loans taken from banks and local moneylenders. But instead of helping Govt is busy proving that these suicides are not farm related. For more Aditya Ji can be reached at 08896532642
