Subedar Ram Kishen Grewal’s suicide is one more case meant for political mileage. How many farmers committed suicide due to banks enforcing rules for recovering minimal loan amount in the past? In this particular case also banks failed to deliver the pension amount in time and the blame is squarely passed on the Government at the centre. If these politicians had the guts they should have protested in front of the SBI to show their resentment instead of indulging in vote bank politics. Depression is a strong mood involving sadness, loneliness, discouragement, despair or hopelessness that lasts for weeks, months or ever for a longer period and creates the guilty feelings. Even though the deep brain stimulation surgery is practiced in other countries, in India patients suffering from depression suppress their disease and die without much relief from surgery as and the treatment is expensive. OROP issue was raised by the opposition to defame the government. Opposition parties should have prevented him from committing suicide rather than trying to take political mileage when everything is over. Dance of democracy is taken serious turn and show the real image of the country.
