Family members of Gajendra Singh, the farmer who committed suicide during an Aam Aadmi Party rally in Delhi said that the handwriting on the suicide note found on the spot was not his, reported Hindustan Times.

One of his five sisters and his aunt said that the suicide note that they saw on news channels was not his.His family also said the Gajendra Singh had not shown any sign of distress to indicate what he was planning.
The hand-written suicide note in Hindi found at the spot said he was taking his life because rains had destroyed his crops. He ended the note with 'Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan, Jai Rajasthan'.
His fourth sister, also echoed similar sentiments, saying the suicide note does not resemble anything Gajendra Singh ever wrote.
Gajendra Singh was the nephew of village sarpanch Gopal Singh and was close to a prominent local Congress leader.
Meanwhile, Gajendra Singh's brother alleged that Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia knew his brother, accusing the Arvind Kejriwal-led party of being insensitive towards the issue.
"Gajendra had gone to meet Manish Sisodia after they won the elections. Even yesterday, when I spoke to him, he said that he is going to a rally. Manish Sisodia knew him. Manish Sisodia might have called him for the rally," Gajendra Singh's brother Vijendra Singh told ANI.
"My brother died because of negligence. Whether it is the Delhi Police or the AAP, they have been insensitive to the matter. The rally went on even after he died, it is so saddening. Kejriwal ji is also at fault, he should have asked others to bring him down from the tree," he added.
“I can’t believe it. He was not that type, nor his circumstances demanded him to do so,” Gopal Singh told Mail Today just before leaving for New Delhi after coming to know about the tragedy.
Gajendra Singh was cremated at his native village in Rajasthan on Thursday. His eldest son lit the pyre.
The teary-eyed people at Nangal Jhamarwara in Dausa district, shouted slogans when his last rites were being performed.
There was also sloganeering against Vasundhara Raje-led Rajasthan government and AAP.
Former chief minister Ashok Gehlot, Rajasthan Congress president Sachin Pilot and other party leaders met his family and tried to console them.
Almost all the people from his village and some from the surrounding villages were there to console his family.
"We are so shocked and depressed that many of us did not even cook our food after we heard of his suicide," said a villager.
"His father Bane Singh has been crying since he heard the news. It has become difficult for us to control him as he also fainted couple of times while crying and we had to seek help of a doctor to see him," said Gopal Singh, Gajendra's uncle.
"Similar condition is of his three children and his wife as they have been crying for hours now," said Singh.
