Statistical Study : Poor Farmers & Dirty Indian Politics

India farmer kills himself at Delhi AAP rally

cartoon_politics_india2This is the most debated news on Indian media now! Maybe for this week, till we get another sensational news. Political parties are taking their respective pickings to do politics. Blaming one another and trying to follow their traditional strategy to make people fools. None of the political parties ever tried to resolve the agricultural issues on a serious move. So many projects are been dragged for political and business reasons. Meanwhile, farmers are continuing to commit suicide across the country. When the media covered a single farmer’s suicide on daylight, the politicians are ‘ullu banaving’ making fool of us.

Delhi BJP demands AAP Govt to give compensation of Rs 5 crore to farmer’s family – What about thousands of farmers who died without making a political impact as the farmer who committed suicide in Delhi recently? Our politicians are exposing themselves by making such statements and irresponsible blaming on each other.

Why no Indian Political party is focusing on the solution to end this? They are fighting over how to acquire lands from farmers by various laws to favours industries. Why no one is talking about Indian Rivers Inter-link project?

The Indian Rivers Inter-link is a proposed large-scale civil engineering project that aims to link India‘s rivers by a network of reservoirs and canals and so reduce persistent floods in some parts and water shortages in other parts of India. Which can address the causes of farmer suicides and also enrich the Environment of the whole country!

The raw truth is, projects like inter-linking rivers would unite the people of India together. Maybe while executing the project some politics may happen but once the project gets completed the whole nation will get the benefits of it. People will come together ahead of their regional and states differences. Which will revamp agriculture, India will become more of a Green Nation than an industrial nation. This of course, will prevent Industrialists to an extent and prevent politicians’ tie up with Industries and they cannot make easy money. That’s why such effective projects are kept on hold or progressing at snail pace!

As of 2013, a total of 296,438 farmers had killed themselves in India since 1995.[4] Most farm suicides have been linked to debt, a sharp rise in input costs, serious water crises, price volatility and crop failure due to pest attacks and disease. India is an agrarian country with around 60% of its people depending directly or indirectly upon agriculture. Farmer suicides account for 11.2% of all suicides in India.[1]

In Britain farmers are taking their own lives at a rate of one a week. ƒ In India, one farmer committed suicide every 32 minutes between 1997 and 2005. Read more from UN’s article here 

The following data is bit old, but shared here for analytical purpose.

Reasons for farm suicides.
(in 2002)[27]
Percent
(of suicides)
Habits like drinking, gambling, etc. 20.35
Failure of crops 16.81
Other reasons (e.g. chit fund) 15.04
Family problems with spouse, others 13.27
Chronic illness 9.73
Marriage of daughters 5.31
Political affiliation 4.42
Property disputes 2.65
Debt burden 2.65
Price crash 2.65
Borrowing too much (e.g. for house construction) 2.65
Losses in non-farm activities 1.77
Failure of bore well 0.88
Note: “Reasons were given by close relatives and friends. There are multiple reasons for suicides. Not even one case was given only one reason.”[27]

Indian Politicians must understand that people are no fools and we can read their minds so well! Instead of blaming one another, they must act upon solutions. Shame on them if they continue doing politics with Farmers and commoners of this country.

He claims BJP and Congress are together behind the screens and Ambani is behind them.. ! We people do not know who is playing with whom. But One thing is sure that they all are playing with India and we the people. Even Arvind Kejriwal could play behind the screen? Who knows? All these politicians have no clue of what they are doing to the country, except for dealing with their own problems and ensure they are in power to do any non sense they want!

Chief Minister Sleeps on Street! : What We Miss to Learn!!!

kejivarl

Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal slept on the road, a bitterly cold January night, right next to where his blue Wagon R car was parked near India Gate. After a night out on the streets, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal resumed his protest against the city’s police in the heart of Delhi today, his supporters staying put despite sudden winter rain and bad weather.

Mr Kejriwal woke up at 5.20 in the morning, every move captured on camera. With “good morning” out of the way, he fired his first salvo, attacking Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde. “How can Home Minister (Sushil Kumar) Shinde sleep when so many crimes are happening in Delhi? Is he a dictator? We won’t negotiate, this is not a grocery store,” he said. – Courtesy : NDTV

What is happening in India? A Chief Minister has to come down to the streets to dharna (protest) for bringing an official procedure / change of control over administering the Police department of the state! How people of India are seeing it? Moments after the media captured this act by AAP leader and the Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, the result is much expected. People started praising it on the social media and giving supporting voice. Well, I must be synonymous with everyone when I talk about their intention to bring an effective system in place to protect women and ensure they are safe in the Capital City. I am 100% with their intended purpose.

But on the other hand, if we see it as a democratic procedure or a process oriented functioning of a government, What a CM doing is totally not good for the country! For each and every thing we cannot enter into the streets to protest and demand justice in this way! If it is a civilized country under democracy, then this is not at all needed.

Instead of all this attention grabbing things, why not the concerned people come out with the proposed solution, with explanation that details Why the Current procedure toothless against prevention of crimes and how a control shift can make it efficient? Make a public statement, file a case with top priority on the Supreme Court, or a special request to the President of India and make the public & media to cover the complete proceedings, as they do like now covering this story and hyping in the news media. Let us people watch the court hearing, what and how you politicians and lawmakers are making decisions behind the walls. We get to know all your efficiency! We will be glad and proud if you make India such a powerful democracy and make people a part of the governance in reality. 

Even for a successful long-term running of a small organisation, we need visibility and proper procedures. But for administering the country you politicians are doing so many publicity stunts and again and again guiding the nation on the wrong path. If everyone gets on the roads and start protesting for every demand, India would turn like a riot ground and a battlefield. Is that what you politicians want to cash in? Sorry, we are not ready to believe in any of the usual political gimmicks. We have been seeing enough in the last 60+ years. We need change! 

So for the people who supports such kind of propaganda, please grow up and make a decision in the upcoming elections. 49 O is the tool to reject them. We have limited powers as citizens of this country. Our Vote is the Primary weapon against the corrupt, bad politics and stupid administration. So use that effectively. The world will be watching the elections. Because many countries want to invest and take profits from our populous market, they can’t do it without the politicians, they will wait to know whom we choose so that they can deal with them. 

 SO. MAKE YOUR CHOICE WISELY. As far as Mr.Arvind Kejriwal is concerned, we need to wait and watch, allow time to conclude a result about that gentleman. Will he stand out different or join the club of the political predecessors of this biggest democracy!
