Tribal panchayats eye MP-MLA funds for farmers’ widows, orphans

More than 160 tribal panchayats from different districts in the state passed resolutions demanding that MPs and MLAs look after the welfare of families of tribal farmers who commit suicide, an official said here on Monday.

The resolution is considered significant as the children and widows of farmers who ended their lives due to the agrarian crises face a bleak future with no help from any quarter.

 Now, the local legislators and parliamentarians shall be approached to provide for the survivors of the farmers who commit suicide in their constituencies and release money from their annual MP-MLA funds, tribal leaders said.
