BJP must reveal R'than CM face: Sachin Pilot 23.8.2017 Deccan Herald - National
Congress leader Sachin Pilot has demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should declare BJP's chief ministerial candidate for the Assembly elections to be held in December 2018.

Pilot said, "(BJP national president) Amit Shah disclosed the chief ministerial candidates in Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka, but did not do so during his recent visit to Rajasthan. So now, Modi should disclose the name during his Udaipur visit."

Pilot also demanded loan waivers for farmers in the state.

Lashing out at the Vasundhara Raje government for negligence towards farmers, Pilot said, "Several states have announced crop loan waiver, but no such initiative has been taken in Rajasthan. There cannot be double standards for farmers. When the prime minister visits Udaipur, he should announce loan waiver.".

According to Pilot, nearly 60 farmers committed suicide in the state last year, while 16 farmers killed themselves this year.

Global warming killing Indian farmers: study 31.7.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Rising temperature due to global warming was responsible for the death of nearly 60,000 Indian farmers in the last 30 years, scientists claimed demonstrating a deleterious link between global warming and suicides. The research by an economist at the University of California, Berkley, is probably the first one on the Indian farm sector to show how a dip in farm income — as a consequence of rising temperature — led thousands of farmers to commit suicides. Suicide claims more than 1,30,000 lives in India each year, but the underlying causes are poorly understood. One hypothesis links suicide to extreme climate events that damage crop yields and increases farmers' debt burdens. To test this hypothesis, Tamma Carleton analysed suicide records of 47 years from India's National Crime Records Bureau along with the official data on crop yields and high-resolution climate data.
