“Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan, Jai Rajasthan”: Last words of farmer Gajender who killed himself in ‘Kisan Rally’

Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s ‘kisan rally’ against the contentious Land Acquisition Bill witnessed chaos in the afternoon when a man committed suicide by hanging himself from a tree.

The man, identified as Gajender Singh Rajput, from Rajasthan’s Dausa district, killed himself even after AAP leaders urged him to come down.

Gajender was rushed to the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital where doctors declared him dead.

Before ending his life, the farmer from Rajasthan had written a suicide note, which said he had nothing to look forward to in life as his entire crop had been destroyed by unseasonal rains.

In the end of his suicide note, Gajendar had written, “Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan, Jai Rajasthan”.

Recently, India has witnessed a surge in suicide rates of dozen debt-laden farmers. Unseasonal rains and hailstorms have taken a toll on the crops, most likely contributing to the suicides; however, the distressed farmers are blaming the government that not enough steps are taken to deliver relief to  them.  Along with that, the Land Acquisition Bill, that is tailor-made to suit the business houses, has doubled the discontent among the farmers. Also, the political parties are not leaving any stone unturned in extracting the maximum political gains from the issue.

Amid the political battle, it’s the farmer who is crushed like an insect and used as a tool to maximize political mileage for the political parties.

Recently, over 400 ryots (farmers) have killed themselves in Uttar Pradesh after their crops were damaged by the freakish weather phenomenon.

Statistics suggest that over 24.7 million acres of crops were destroyed in the unseasonal rain and hailstorms in the months of March and early April, and still central government says that there is no clear link to the suicides.
