Dear Pradhan Mantri Ji,

I am writing this letter to draw your attention to the plight of farmers across India, which has resulted in a high level of rural distress, including thousands of suicides by farmers in the past three years. There have been increasing protests by farmers in one state after another, which have been met by your silence and apathy while the state governments of your party have let the police lose on the poor farmers. Six farmers have lost their lives in police firing in Madhya Pradesh, many seriously injured. Meanwhile, many continue to commit distress suicides, the latest such tragedy occurring in the CM's own constituency.
