Five farmers have committed suicide in Yelkal village in Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao's home district Medak. So far, 34 farmers have committed suicide from the same village, five of them after formation of Telangana State. Opposition parties alleged that even though farmer suicides are being reported everyday, the Chief Minister is reluctant to declare the district as drought-hit. Families of the 34 farmers, who ended their lives, were brought to Hyderabad by the BJP to showcase the crisis on the ground.
