From the Hindustan Times:
State home minister Bhupinder Singh has blamed some of the deaths in Madhya Pradesh’s Sehore on ghosts and evil spirits, spurring criticism that the government believes in supernatural beings.
A written reply tabled by him in the state assembly listed 418 cases of suicides in chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s home district over the last three years, but did not attribute even a single one to crop failure.
“In our survey, we did not find any family saying that the farmers concerned had committed suicide due to crop failure-induced economic stress,” Singh told the assembly in response to a question from Congress MLA Shailender Patel.
Patel said Singh, in his written response, cited ghostly possession as one of the reasons for farmers committing suicide.
