BJP demands judicial probe over farmer suicide


Bhubaneswar,November 5: The BJP today has demanded a judicial probe into the series of farmer suicide in the state.

We, therefore, demand a judicial probe into the cases to bring truths to the limelight,” Mohapatra told reporters in the state capital after winding up his visit to the drought prone districts.

Referring to the drought situation in south Odisha, Mohapatra said the situation in 14 blocks of Rayagada, Gajapati and Kandhamal districts is grim.

The state government should declare these 14 blocks at completely drought-affected areas, he said, adding that taking stock of the plight of the farmers in all drought-affected areas of the state, the state government should waive all loans of these farmers.
