India’s farm laws: What do we really know?
Time & Location
About the Event
The recent farmer's protests in India have garnered widespread media, and social media attention. A seemingly run of the mill reform bill in the Agricultural sector in the world's largest democracy has ignited passions on both sides of the debate. Cutting through the smoke screens and cloaks of political power plays, Vichaar Manthan is asking the key questions.
What are these farming reforms about? Who do they affect, how do they effect them, and where? Will these reforms usher in an era of modernisation and mechanisation of India's farming industry at the cost of the small farmer? Are there external, vested interest groups at the heart of the agitation who are utilising small farmers to their own ends, or is this really a valid uprising against unjust laws?
Join us as we explore the intricacies of these farm laws and get to the heart of the matter.
