New Delhi : The Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while sharing "pain" over the suicide by a farmer in the national capital, said that the agriculture community's problems are required to be dealed with collectively. He also expressed willingness to accept any suggestion.

Speaking in Lok Sabha after members expressed anguish over Wednesday’s incident, he said the farmers cannot be left to fend for themselves and evaluation would have to be made about "shortcomings" that occurred before his government came as well as during his tenure.

He said the farmers cannot be left to fend for themselves and need to be provided help. "There should be a collective resolve in this regard. We have an open mind to consider any suggestion that is made. We cannot let the farmers die," the PM added. Modi said governments, from time to time, have been doing their bit to address this problem.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh also said the government stands by the farming community and will provide whatever help is required. Suggesting that compensation is provided as per procedure, he said states have been asked to compensate the farmers sufficiently.

He added the states have been asked to draw from State Disaster Response Fund (SDRF) which would be reimbursed by the Union Government.
