Darpan News Desk Darpan, 01 Dec, 2020
  • WATCH: Why are Farmers Up in Arms Against India's Government ?

A story that is trending and not only has gained traction but has sparked some serious interest among the public and politicians within and outside of India is one of the Farmers Protests in India. Protest by thousands of farmers from Punjab and Haryana took place in New Delhi over the weekend entering its fifth day Monday as the farmers continue to showcase their displeasure against the Centre's new farm laws. The laws were passed in mid-September by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government.

The laws bring private parties into the controlled agriculture sector. The farmers biggest concern is that the sale and success of their crops will be left at the hands of large corporations, which will impact the incomes of smaller producers. Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Tomar has invited 'farmer unions'for talks.
