In an incident that is likely to embarrass the Devendra Fadnavis government, a farmer allegedly committed suicide on 13 October in Maharashtra's Buldhana district while wearing a BJP promotional T-shirt.

Incidentally, Fadnavis is in the east Maharashtra city where he is scheduled to address three rallies during the day for the 21 October Assembly polls.

Police said 38-year-old farmer, Raju Talware, was found hanging at around 11 am at his residence in Khatkhed in Shegaon taluka, part of Jalgaon (Jamod) Assembly seat.

“He was wearing a BJP T-shirt with the caption ‘punha aaluya aaple sarkar’ (let’s bring our government to power again),”
Police official

Maharashtra labour minister Sanjay Kutte is the BJP candidate and sitting MLA from Jalgaon (Jamod) Assembly seat.

“It is believed that Talware had run up debts. The truth will be known after a detailed probe. We have registered a case,”
Police Official, Shegaon rural police station

While the BJP-Shiv Sena have expressed confidence that they would return to power with an emphatic win, opposition Congress and NCP have been centring their attack on the government by claiming 16,000 farmers have committed suicide in the last five years.
