INDIA FARMERS – Modi relents a year after protests by farmers against controversial farm laws

Spain, UK

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday said the government would revoke three controversial farm laws in a significant climbdown before key state elections and a year after relentless protests by farmers across the country.

The parliament approved the three agricultural reforms ostensibly meant to modernize the troubled-agricultural sector last year, sparking nationwide protests with farmers alleging that the measure would leave them at the mercy of the free market without protection guarantees from the government.
