Pravachans on Farmers' Suicides

The Vidarbha Jan Andolan on why the Rs 17,000 crore package announced by the Indian government does not sufficiently address the continuing farmers' suicides in Vidarbha:
The complete loan waiver and restoration of cotton price @ Rs.2700/- per quintal is only solution to stop these on going farmers suicides in Vidarbha but administration has diverted economic issues of agrarian crisis to social issues and spending more than Rs.3 million on spiritual gurus parvachan-kritans who are not aware of any of rural problems of rural Vidarbha.
