NEW DELHI, April 23 � The issue of suicides by farmers and the agrarian crisis today rocked Parliament, a day after a Rajasthan farmer ended his life here, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi stating that these problems are �deep-rooted� and must be addressed collectively for which he is open to suggestions, reports PTI.

Expressing his anguish over the suicide by a farmer from Rajasthan during a rally by AAP here, the Prime Minister said farmers cannot be left to fend for themselves and assessment would have to be made about �shortcomings� that occurred before his government came as well as during his tenure.

Observing that nothing is more important than a farmer�s life or for that matter a human life, he said, �The problem (afflicting the farmers) is old, deep-rooted and widespread and we have to seek solutions in that context. There should be a collective resolve in this regard. We have an open mind to consider any suggestion that is made... we cannot let the farmers die.�

Opposition members created ruckus in the Lok Sabha over the suicide incident, leading to adjournment of proceedings even as the government said it was ready to discuss the matter.
