Bharatiya Janta Party has demanded a judicial probe into the death of farmers

Bhubaneswar:(ONT Bureau)8/3/17; Bharatiya Janta Party has demanded a judicial probe into the death of farmers, which have been reported from different parts of Odisha.
Addressing a press conference, State BJP vice-president Sameer Mohanty today accused the BJD government of being ‘insensitive ’towards the farmers ’plight in the state.
He alleged that there have been a spate of farmer suicides as the government had utterly failed to perform its duty in providing proper irrigation and electricity to different parts of the state.The district administration had earlier claimed that Bagarti had ended life by consuming pesticide following a family dispute. However, the family members alleged that he had committed suicide following crop loss and debt burden.
Agriculture Minister Pradeep Maharathy had read out the report of the collector in the assembly on March 4.
Subsequently, the minister had ordered a fresh probe into the incident after the family members raised objections on the reason cited for Bargarti’s death by the administration without conducting a thorough inquiry, Mohanty added.
