Farmers began their protest on the borders of Delhi almost two months ago. Their major demand has been a repeal of the three new farm laws which many have termed as ‘anti-farmer’.
In the sixth episode of Season 2 of Justify, Vidhi’s podcast on law and politics in India, Dr Arghya Sengupta speaks to Ireena Vittal, a long-time observer of Indian agriculture, on what the new agri laws aim to do, what the major contentions of the protesting farmers are, and on the larger reforms that Indian agriculture needs.
