He made these remarks after visiting the family members of Dalit farmers Narsimhulu, who has committed suicide . He found out the reasons behind the extreme step taken by the farmer.
Speaking on the occasion he said that he was expressing his deep condolences at the tragic incident and added that it was not good for the state government to take back the land allotted to the farmer by threatening him. He said that the state government which promised three acres of land to the Dalits, was taking away their existing lands.
