Farmers suicides looming large in Andhra and Telangana

Andhra Media half truths

Hyderabad: Debt trap, drought, water and power issues driving the farmers in both Andhra and Telangana to tge death trap. According to social organisations working on farming sector, estimated that about 500 farmers died of suicides so far this year, in both Andhra and Telangana states.

But media is hiding the figures from Andhra and reporting nothing from that state and day in and day out crying foul in Telangana. Andhra media is doing a campaign that as if sucides are new and xaused by Telangana Government. They did not reported a single farmer suicide from Andhra Pradesh.

But the fact is suicides in Ananthapur are equally heartening. Here is the story and the list of suicides of farmers and textile workers in Ananthapur. AndhraPradesh Government is hiding the deaths of farmers. Andhra media is intentionally publishing the suicide reports in local pages.

When a reporter cantacted a Communist leader from Ananthapur, he said that he dont have any information on suicides. After publishing this report in Namasthe Telangana, he was shocked to know tge situation. Such is the media role. Where as same media in Telangana, trying to paint Telangana Government, a failure.
