Agriculture reform: Will new laws destroy Indian farmers' livelihoods?
DW, 08 Sep 2021
Farmers in India are stepping up the pressure on the government to repeal a set of laws they say will harm their livelihoods. Thousands gathered at a grain market outside the capital Delhi on Monday to protest these laws.
Over the weekend, there was also a massive rally in another town outside Delhi.
Farmers believe the new laws, introduced in September 2020 will leave them at the mercy of rich food companies.
Farmers say, these companies will use their power to dictate the price of agricultural products and will hurt their income. The protests have been on for nearly ten months now and there's warnings of even bigger ones to come.
