When asked about 67,000 male suicides, Hon Mantri Smt Maneka Gandhi Ji, had the following to say “...There are so many reasons but depressions due to economic reasons is primary in male suicide. This number is doubled or tripled in women – and of these most of them are due to treatment by their husbands and their families . This number is doubled or tripled in women – and of these most of them are due to treatment by their husbands and their families. And how many of them are ” suicides” is a moot point …” .
She went on to add ” I suggest you do not distort facts to achieve your point. It is sad enough even when one man or woman commits suicide. …”
So, according to the Hon Mantri ji, women commit double or triple the # of suicides as males or probably she meant that the # of suicides has doubled or tripled recently and the main reason for such female suicides is due to (ill ? ) treatment by their husbands and their families.
…..hmm the men claim and married male suicides are 2 times that of females; The Hon Mantri ji says female suicides are 3 times males
I’m all confused about facts ..facts …facts… !!!
