Suicide farmer’s widow says family facing living death

Udaipur : GauriDevi, widow of Lehrulal, the farmer who committed suicide by hanging in his field at Rajsamand, is clueless on how the family would survive after losing the only earning member in the family. The farmer was under stress after frost damaged his entire crops and thus dashing all hopes of a good income from them.

Gauridevi, who wept inconsolably said her husband had borrowed money from money lenders to arrange for the seeds and fertilizers for the brinjal and cauliflower crop sown in their four beeghas of land. ” Assured of a good income from the crops, my husband even began house construction work which is underway. We are under a debt of three to four lakh rupees from different persons and now I dont have any idea how I can ever repay them. Destiny has been so cruel with me and my little children” GauriDevi said in her semi-constructed home at PipliAcharyan village on tuesday. ” People have sympathy but no solution to my problems. Creditors had been demanding money and my husband had promised them to return after the harvest. How will I manage the household, educate the kids and repay the huge amount?” the uneducated woman wailed. Meanwhile, Rajsamand MLA Kiran Maheshwari spoke to the deceased’s family and offered condolences. Maheshwari said that she would make all efforts to see that the aggrieved family gets the due compensation from the state government.
