India And Its Previously Proposed Farm Laws: Analysis Of The Issues Raised

Vaishnav Arun Kumar, OP Jindal Law School


India over the past few months has seen several protests that are organised in the borders surrounding Delhi. Several farmer unions have demanded for the repealing of the laws put forth by the central government. This has caused a nationwide trend of several citizens requesting the government to hear their queries and recall such bills. The farmers have received support from several parties from the opposition. Several international organisations have come in support of the farmers including several human rights advocates questing the method of how the police force has treated the farmers leading the protest peacefully. The main question remains as to whether the MSP system will be followed and there are several reports which states that the queries of the farmers will be answered if the government makes the MSP system mandatory. However, the government has not been willing to add in such text to the laws and continue to struggle in coming to a consensus with the farmers and the several unions protesting at the border. Every time the government had a meeting with the farmers, the laws have been rejected by them and are not willing to listen to any of the proposed amendments. It is quite understandable as the government are unwilling to listen to main query regarding the MSP. However, to understand such issues, we must first look into the main context of the 3 laws and the proposed change to the current structure.
