HYDERABAD: A farmer from Nirmal district tried to end his life by consuming pesticide on Friday afternoon at the C block in the Secretariat, where the CMO is located.

The 35-year-old farmer, Devenna, came to the Secretariat along with his wife and two children on Friday.

He came to the C block to meet chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao to seek compensation as a part of his farm land was acquired for Mission Bhagiratha pipeline project. When he was not allowed to meet the CM, he tried to end his life by consuming pesticide.

The security staff shifted him to nearby hospital and his condition is stated to be stable, according to police. According to police, Devanna’s land was acquired for laying a water pipeline for Mission Bhagiratha project.

The farmer left a note in which he stated that Mudhole MLA G Vittal Reddy, endowments minister Indrakaran Reddy and Nirmal joint collector Siva Lingaiah were responsible for his deed.
