Feeding India's protesting farmers: 'Modi's insurance policies are doing nothing for the poor'

Pushpinder Pal is one in all tens of 1000’s of Indian farmers camped alongside 9 miles (15km) of main roads outdoors Delhi, protesting about agricultural legal guidelines they declare will devastate their earnings. Primarily based in Haryana, he collects meals on daily basis from his native gurdwara, a Sikhs’ place of meeting, delivering spinach curry to large numbers of protesters. The Indian prime minister, Narendra Modi, promised to extend farmers’ incomes, however they declare his new insurance policies are designed to favour wealthy companies and never them. In one of many largest protests in historical past, farmers are pledging to remain put whereas they wait for his or her representatives to strike a take care of authorities

    They conveniently forget to mention that lower food prices will make life easier for Indians buying food and that floating crop prices can create more competition and innovation than government purchases at fixed rates. Plus, a higher percentage of the final food price will go to farmers, meaning the benefits to those buying food will stay the same but the loss to farmers will be mitigated or even non-existent. These protests are just a story of a group who unduly benefited by government policies whining when those policies were repealed. Notice that it's specifically the Punjab region protesting as most of the wheat they farm is bought by the government above market rates, while other farmers in other industries who don't sell at minimum support prices stand to benefit.

    दिल्ली के पास के किसान सबसे घटिया अनाज बेच कर सबसे ज्यादा पैसे कमाते हैं और देश के किसान इनका मुह देखते है…. इस बिल से पूरे देश को फायदा है दिल्ली के पास वाले दलाल किसानों को छोड़ कर…. फ्री मार्केट में जिसका सबसे अच्छा अनाज होगा उसको सबसे अच्छा दाम मिलेगा इसलिए नहीं कि आप एक खास एरिया में रहते हो

    From comments I can see same crisis is evident in Philippines and US. Forbes also recently announced Bill gates as largest farmland owner on 15/01/2021. The private firms and big money millionaires want to control agriculture. They know that one common thing between poor and rich is food. So does that mean the elites have all had a session over how farmers/food in their respective nations has to be controlled ?

    No mention or explanation of how these new laws are harmful, especially when the present system is already known to be flawed and curropt. And as always, mainstream media trying to divert facts and mislead people of India.

    On top of that Modi called the protestors as 'Parasites'. This should be the headlines but unfortunately they are talking about twitter and GoI.

    We need to supply guns and ammunition to these farmers so they can rid India of Modi's tyranny.
