Man collapses at BJP office in Dehradun after consuming poison

Man collapses at BJP office in Dehradun after consuming poison

Following the death of transporter Prakash Pandey who had consumed pesticide before attending a Janata Milan programme, the Congress has stated that this unfortunate incident was an example of the severe damage caused by demonetisation and Goods and Services Tax (GST).

The deceased, Prakash Pandey, had said that he was taking the extreme step as he failed to take up the issue with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, reported Prabhat Khabar. "He has fallen victim to GST and demonetisation", the former chief minister told NDTV. "I have therefore been forced to end my life", he said.

Four days ago, a businessman reached the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) office in Uttarakhand after consuming poison. I am financially ruined due to the decisions taken by this government. The revelation triggered panic in the BJP office and Pandey was rushed to the Doon hospital where he was admitted to the ICU.

Confirming that Pandey had consumed poison, the hospital's chief medical superintendent, KK Tamta, said the businessman was kept under observation. There are many people like me (who are debt-ridden due to demonetisation and GST)... "We have preserved viscera sample for examination", he said. It is a matter of shame for the state government that it could not do anything to save the man.

"He had taken loan to purchase new trucks but the business slowed down first due to demonetization and then due to GST and he was unable to pay back the loan", he added.

After GST came into effect in July previous year, it had led to confusion and fear among smaller transporters as operating costs increased.
