Bhubaneswar: Labour Minister and Bhatli MLA Sushant Singh today alleged activists of BJP had instigated farmer Brunda Sahu to commit suicide.

To prove his claim, Singh stated he has a video in which the saffron party members are seen provoking Brunda Sahu to take the extreme step. "I can identify the BJP activists featured in the video," the minister said, adding that he will hand over the video to police for a probe.

Refuting the allegation BJP MLA Pradip Purohit said, "The ruling party is levelling baseless charges and the video is a conspiracy to malign BJP’s image.”

He further questioned, “Has the saffron party instigated 4,000 farmers who committed suicide in the State during past 17 years?”

There have been irregularities in pesticide and seed purchase, said the BJP MLA adding that first of all, the State government should set these things right.

Following Brunda Sahu’s death on November 1, resentment has been brewing over crop loss due to pest attacks.

In Bargarh district, so far four farmers have killed themselves in the past one week allegedly over crop loss.
