Lucknow: A farmer from Lalitpur allegedly tried to hang himself near CM’s residence ahead of UP Budget on Friday. The police and fire-brigade personnel had to convince the farmer for over an hour before he came down the tree.

Ram Raj, accompanied by his son, had climbed a 100-feet-tall tree near 5 Kalidas Marg, which is the official residence of UP CM Yogi Adityanath. The farmer wanted to seek Yogi’s help to waive off his loan of Rs 1.5 lakh.

After much effort and promises by the officials, Raj was brought down and taken to the police station.

The Yogi Adityanath-led government in Uttar Pradesh had approved waiver of farm loans upto Rs 1 lakh last year as an effort to fulfil a major election promise made by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
