A farmer in Rajasthan committed suicide leaving behind a video and a note in which the farmer is seen attacking Ashok Gehlot and his aide Sachin Pilot for not fulfilling their loan waiver promises. Farmer welfare is a cause for concern due to erratic rain and unpredictable weather. Farmers in India fall into a debt trap due to failed crops or insufficient harvest resulting from uncontrollable conditions. The farmer named Sohan Lal was seen requesting the government to look into the issues faced by farmers at least after his death. He urged his community members to stay united and fight for their cause. His death brings up the unhappy state of farmers in the country to the limelight, an issue which is of grave significance.
