Congress Leader Rahul Gandhi addresses the Lok Sabha over farmer issues. He also spoke on farmer suicide triggered by debt. “Yesterday, a farmer in Wayanad committed suicide due to debt. In Wayanad, bank notices for non payment of loans given to 8000 farmers. Under a relevant act their properties are attached against their bank loans, this is resulting in rise in farmers suicide,” said Rahul Gandhi. He added, “No concrete steps were taken in the Union Budget to provide relief to the farmers.”
