Singh had been participating in the protest since September 15 which is being organised by the Bharatiya Kisan Union (Ekta Ugrahan) at Badal village.
Transport Minister Sovandeb Chattopadhyay and many Trinamool Congress leaders have been highlighting the NCRB records that show no farmer suicide for two consecutive years in Bengal.
It is YSRC government that compensated the families of those farmers who committed suicide during the TDP rule, he added.
According to the report, 491 farmers in the State died by suicide in 2019, of whom 373 were farmers cultivating their own lands and 118 were those cultivating leased lands.
The number of suicides involving farmers and farmhands in Andhra Pradesh increased to 1,029 last year from 664 in 2018.
In the meantime, the lenders started to demand their money back while the bank served a notice to Das.
Many of the families who lost their land to the KIADB are left with nothing to survive on, and are in no mood to vacate.
Malhari Batule, a resident of Bharajwadi, had a couple of loans outstanding, and the monthly installments of his stolen truck were also pending, all of which were causing him immense distress.
He said the manch opposed the English medium of teaching introduced by the State government.
In addition, his crop yield was poor this season that drove him to suicide, the police said.
Activists said women’s lack of visibility as farmers due to lack of land ownership is not reflected in the farmer suicide numbers published by the states.
Overall, 1,34,516 suicides were reported in the country during 2018, showing an increase of 3.6 per cent in comparison to 2017.
The number of farmer and agriculture labourer suicides in Andhra Pradesh has come down during 2018, which is good news for the State, a predominantly agrarian-based economy.
According to the data compiled by NCRB, 10,349 people working in the farm sector committed suicide in 2018.
