As many as nine debt-ridden farmers committed suicide in Vidarbha region of Maharashtra in the last 72 hours, activists said today.

According to Vidarbha Jan Andolan Samiti (VJAS), a voluntary organisation working among farmers in the region, those who ended their lives included five from Yavatmal district, two from Buldhana district and one each from Bhandara and Amravati districts.

The condition of the distressed farmers in the region had aggravated because of the failure of the crop due to bad weather, a VJAS release said here. The government must start buying cotton at Rs 3,000 per quintal across the board to provide succour to the cultivators, it added.
