Amid farmer protests at Tikri border near Delhi, a senior lawyer allegedly committed suicide by consuming poison at the protest site on Sunday morning. The police have reportedly recovered a suicide note from the lawyers pocket describing Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a ?dictator. 


The lawyer, identified as Amarjit Singh, was a part of a group consisting of other lawyers from Punjabs Jalalabad in Fazilka district. The group had joined protesting farmers against the farm laws passed by the Modi government. 

A member of the Bar Association from Jalalabad informed that Singh reportedly consumed poison near Bibi Gulab Kaur stage at the border. He was immediately taken to Rohtak’s Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences, where he breathed his last. 

We have informed the relatives of the deceased. Once they reach here, their statements will be recorded and further proceedings will be conducted, PTI quoted a police officer from Haryana’s Jhajjar district as saying.

A suicide note addressed to Modi, The Dictator? was recovered from the lawyers pocket. Singh had mentioned in the note that he sacrificing himself in support of the protests. The letter was typewritten and dated December 18, with the advocates signature. 

The letter read: The General Public of India has given you absolute majority, power and faith for saving and prospering their life. But with great sorrow and pains, I have to write that you have become the Prime Minister of special groups like Ambani and Adani etc.

The letter further read: The common people like farmers and labourers are feeling defrauded by your three agriculture black bills and the worst life is inevitable. The public is on tracks (sic) and roads not for votes but for the livelihood of their families and generations. In order to feed some capitalists you have destroyed the common people and agriculture, which is the backbone of India.

Kindly do not snatch the bread and butter (Roti) of farmers, labourers and common people for a few capitalists and do not compel them to eat sulphos (read: celphos, a fumigant). Socially you have betrayed the public and politically you have betrayed your associate parties like SAD.

Listen, the voice of the people is the voice of God. It is said that you wish for sacrifices like Godhra and I also offer my sacrifice in support of this worldwide agitation for the shaking of your deaf and dumb conscience.

In this month, this is the third alleged suicide, which is linked to the farmer protests. Earlier a Sikh preacher, Sant Ram Singh, died after he allegedly shot himself near the Singhu border protest site. The preacher claimed that he was ?unable to bear the pain of the farmers. Apart from him, a 22-year-old farmer also allegedly died by suicide in Punjabs Bathinda after his return from the protest site near the Delhi border.

Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”

Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”

Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.

The Raaas (2018)

Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”

He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
