Over 2 lakh Indian farmers committed suicide in last 10 years: Narendra Modi

Narendra Modi addressing a rally in Rohania Varanasi said that looking at the present condition of farmers in India, it seems that Congress has changed its "Jai jawaan, jai kisaan" slogan to "mar jawaan, mar kisaan". He further stated that more than 2 lakh farmers have committed suicide in India in the last 10 years, i.e in Congress` rule. According to him it is far more than the number of people died during the different wars we fought after Independence.
