The representatives of Human Rights Forum (HRF) and Rythu Swarajya Vedika (RSV) visited many parts of the state and found that the main reasons for farmers’ suicides are increasing debts, lack of market price for agricultural products and non-release of benefits of government schemes to tenants.

Meanwhile, it was concluded that the Rythu Bharosa scheme launched by the AP government in October 2019 failed to reduce the frustration among the farmers. He advised the government to prepare a proper mechanism to end the agricultural crisis.
