Chennai: Appealing that the Land Bill be dropped, DMK top leader M K Stalin today said the suicide of a farmer in Delhi was a warning to the Centre and also asked the ruling AIADMK in Tamil Nadu to re-consider its support to the “anti-people” legislation.
“This suicide is a warning sign to the Central government. I appeal to them to act promptly and drop the anti-farmers land acquisition bill. I also urge the AIADMK to re-consider its support for this anti-people legislation,” Stalin said in a Facebook post.
Expressing condolences to the kin of Gajendra Singh, Stalin said he was shattered by his suicide.
“Land is not merely an economic asset, it is a source of livelihood for families. Landowners have an emotional connect to their land that cannot be compensated with using money,” he said.
A Rajasthan farmer had yesterday committed suicide by hanging from a tree at a rally addressed by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at Jantar Mantar in the national capital.
