Mumbai: NCP MP Supriya Sule has criticised the BJP-led  Maharashtra government over recent spate of suicide attempts in and around the state secretariat in south Mumbai.

Addressing a rally in Jalgaon in north Maharashtra last evening as part of the NCP's “Hallabol" agitation, Sule said she would prefer to be “Mantralaya of hearts of the common people rather than be the Mantralaya (the seat of power of the state government) where common citizens are committing suicide due to non-delivery of justice and apathy of the administration.”

 

“It would be unfortunate for Maharashtra if farmers’ daughters have to resort to begging,” said Sule, the daughter of NCP supremo Sharad Pawar.

The state government has drawn a severe flak over multiple incidents of suicide attempts in and around Mantralaya.

Three months ago, a farmer had threatened to jump off the Mantralaya building over crop losses. On January 22, an 84-year-old farmer died after he consumed a poisonous substance in Mantralaya demanding adequate compensation for his land acquired for a solar project in Dhule district.
