Indian farmers burn legislation in show of defiance

Indian farmers burn legislation in show of defiance Indian farmers burn legislation in show of defiance

Indian farmers burned a copy of the New Government Agriculture Law on Wednesday, urged with their protests against reform even though there was a decision by the Supreme Court to delay the implementation while their complaints were heard.

Tens of thousands of farmers have camped in the outskirts of the capital, New Delhi, for almost two months, protesting what they say is a law designed to benefit large private buyers at the expense of farmers.

Farmers have consistently called for the total repeal of the laws, though the government says there is “no question” of this happening.
Eight rounds of talks have failed to break the deadlock. The two sides are next due to meet on Friday.
