The Central and State governments are making efforts to provide essential commodities for more than 70 per cent of rural population instead of controlling population growth. Once India relied on USA for providing food for Indians and now it has become self reliant. Thanks to the farmers, who made this happen. However, farmers' suicides are on the rise in the country. The Central and State governments should take measures to eradicate middlemen and provide MSP for farm produce and ensure suppliers of spurious seeds and sub-standard fertilisers are punished. Then only, farmers' suicides can be prevented.
