CM HDK had gone to the Suresh house and gave a compensation cheque of Rs 5 lakh to his family and also assured a Govt job for Suresh’s son or daughter.
HD Kumaraswamy said that “Loan waiver is not the only solution to prevent farmers from committing suicide. Action will be taken to stop the private loan lending business. A rule will be implemented to stop loan lending business after discussing the matter in the legislative assembly.”
