Noisy scenes in Kerala Assembly over farmer suicides; Congress-led UDF stages walkout over demand for loan waiver
By Firstpost 11-Jun-2019
The CPM-Left Democratic Front (LDF) government said they were working out a plan to waive farm loans up to Rs 2 lakh through the Kerala State Farmers' Debt Relief Commission, but the Opposition staged a walkout over the government's reluctance to discuss the farmers' plight on the floor of the House.
Before the walkout, the ruling and Opposition members also locked horns over the number of farmers who ended their lives due to debt and crop loss in the recent period. When Agriculture Minister VS Sunil Kumar said a total of 15 farmers — 10 in Idukki and five in Wayanad — had committed suicide after the LDF government came to power in May 2016, Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala argued that 18 farmers ended their lives in the last one and half years.
