Hello and welcome to another edition of Yahoo Talk.
It has been close to 3 months now that thousands of farmers in the national capital have been protesting against the three controversial farm laws namely:
- The Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020. ...
- Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020. ...
- Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
In the bitter cold, the farmers have been defiant in their protests that these laws must be repealed in totality by the government, to such an extent that it caught the Modi administration on the back-foot.
But is there more this than meets the eye?
Today, we will try to shed some light into this. We will look into farmers protests that had turned violent recently, demystify many popular myths surrounding them and also talk about the way ahead.
Our correspondents Sayan Ganguly and Navneet Mundhra help you understand the in an out of these protests.
