New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Sunday accused the government of “tampering with” and “suppressing” a report on farmer suicides.
Gandhi also tagged a media report which claimed that several changes have been made in the latest NCRB report on farmer suicides and for the first time, a list of state-wise figures was not given.
“Why is the BJP government so afraid of the truth? Farmers are continuously committing suicide under the BJP government’s rule,” Priyanka Gandhi claimed.
किसानों को सही दाम दो, सुविधा दो, सम्मान दो। किसान को मजबूर नहीं मज़बूत करो।

“The farmer is getting Rs. 8 per kg of onion and onion is being sold at Rs. 100 per kg in the market. What is happening?” she added and tagged the video of a farmer expression his plight.
Congress general secretary said, “Instead of solving the problems of the farmers, the BJP government considered it more appropriate to tamper with and hide the report on farmer suicides,”.
Gandhi asked the government to give the right price to the farmers, give them facilities, and give them respect. Do not render the farmers helpless, strengthen them.
In her another tweet, she attacked the Central government over farmers allegedly not getting the right price for onions.
