Gujarat witnessing rise in suicide cases but PM is silent: Kharge

Gujarat witnessing rise in suicide cases but PM is silent: Kharge

New Delhi, Mar 1 (UNI) Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on Friday alleged that the state of Gujarat ruled by the BJP government was witnessing an alarming rate of suicide incidents and questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi's silence on the issue.

In a statement, Kharge alleged that, more than 25,000 lives have been lost to the scourge of suicide over the past three financial years, with nearly 500 of them being students.

He said, the “Prime Minister’s silence on this grave human tragedy in his home state is deafening”.

The Congress President said, “Even CM Bhupendra Patel's acknowledgement of this crisis, while condemnable, falls short of addressing the fundamental failures of governance and the dire need for concrete action to stem the tide of preventable tragedies”.

"The statistics laid bare by the State government paint a grim picture of a populace grappling with despair, hopelessness, and unaddressed grievances," he said.

Calling is as another example of the ‘BJP’s double-engine misgovernance’, Kharge said that it had already inflicted several anyays (injustice) on the country.

He said that the state and central government have failed to fulfill their promises of releasing and filling job vacancies and creating new job opportunities.

The AICC President claimed that maximum number of cases was reported from Ahmedabad (3,280), Surat (2,862), and Rajkot (1,287) and the government failed to provide adequate support and resources to the vulnerable.

He urged the Gujarat government to take immediate and decisive action to address the escalating suicide rates that have cast a dark shadow over our state.
