Farmers protest | Another farmer from Haryana commits suicide near the ticker border

Police said farmer supporting movement against Centre’s new farm laws left a suicide note

On March 7, a 49-year-old farmer in Haryana’s Hisar district allegedly hanged himself from a tree, about seven kilometers from the protest site.

He said that the farmer who supported the movement against the new agricultural laws of the Center has left a suicide note.

“The victim, Rajbir, is from a village in Hisar district. He was found hanging from a tree, ”Vijay Kumar, SHO of Bahadurgarh City Police Station, said over the phone.

His body was found hanging by some farmers, who informed the police.

The suicide note mentions that the three farm laws were responsible for the extreme step taken by Rajbir, allegedly left behind. He also said that the Center should fulfill its final wish by repealing the legislations, the police said.

Last month, a farmer from Jind, Haryana, who was supporting the movement against Centre’s farm laws, hanged himself from a tree just two kilometers from the Tikri border protest site.

Earlier, another farmer from Haryana had allegedly consumed a poisonous substance at the Tikri border. He later died while undergoing treatment at a hospital in Delhi.

Last December, a lawyer from Punjab allegedly killed himself by consuming poison a few kilometers from the protest site on the Tikri border.

Earlier, Sikh preacher Sant Ram Singh also allegedly ended his life near the Singhu border protest site, claiming that he was “ to bear the pain of the peasants”.

Thousands of farmers have been protesting since November last year on Delhi’s borders with Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, withdrawal of the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance, the Farmers’ Trade, Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020. Demanding and Farming Services Act, 2020 and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.

Demonstrating farmers have expressed fears that these laws will pave the way for the dismantling of the minimum support price (MSP) system, leaving them at the “mercy” of large corporations.

However, the Center has said that the new laws will bring better opportunities for farmers and introduce new technologies in agriculture.
