There are two issues here perhaps more. The actual laws and the treatment given to protesting farmers. 
 

Farm reform was a long standing recommendation of the IMF and the UN financial bigwigs I have hard time believing modi will pull this stunt without their support. 
 

The problem that most of these articles have is with the treatment of farmers not the laws themselves. But they are intertwined. 
 

I would prefer the farmers come back with a legit proposal with benchmarks to improve the farming situation in northern India. 
 

Has to be a comprehensive plan that deals with the entire situation - msp, fertilizer use, middlemen, corruption, water table.

 

unfortunately, I don’t see it at this point.

This was all to do with trade and economy. India wants to compete with China but with india being a strongly agriculturally based economy some proposals were put forward to try and strengthen that sector so India will have more clout.

These issues have been going on in India for about 2 decades now, but the truth is that most farmers are not educated enough, or willing enough to make a change yet.

The government is still run by the same people that were involved in 1984 and their relatives. It hasn’t changed, this is the same old RSS thing happening, hence the RSS government branding peacefully protesting Sikhs as terrorists all over the Indian media. The injustices committed against Sikhs are way past being too many and the people who are still committing these I’m Sure will get their karam hit them hard.
