NEW DELHI: A farmer allegedly committed suicide in Thakri village in Rajasthan's Sriganganagar district on Sunday. The 45-year-old farmer left behind a note apparently written by him in which he accused newly elected Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot of not fulfilling its pre-poll promise of waiving bank loans.

In the alleged note written by Sohan Lal, he said, "I am going to end my life today. Nobody is at fault in this. (Ashok) Gehlot and (Deputy Chief Minister) Sachin Pilot are responsible for my death."


"They had made a statement that they will waive off our loans within 10 days... What has happened to their promise? It is time to bow down the government today" the note further added.

The note said urging people to look after the members of his family.

The farmer Sohan Lal had also shot a video on his mobile phone and uploaded it on social media. He consumed poison on Sunday morning and was soon taken to a nearby government hospital from where he was referred to Sriganganagar. He died while being taken to the other hospital.

Sharing details regarding the incident, Sub Divisional Magistrate Sandeep Kakkar said, "Cause of the suicide is being investigated. Action will be taken if it is proved that he took his life because he was under pressure from someone, action will be taken. He was not a defaulter and was paying his dues regularly."
