    Govt. relents, decides to spike farm laws

     

    (Governance/Economy)

    What were the farm laws that have been repealed? Why had the need been felt? In what circumstances were the laws passed? When and how did the farmers’ protests start, and how did the Centre react? How did talks between the Centre and farmers begin, and how did they proceed? What resonance did the protests in Delhi and Punjab have elsewhere, and why? In practical terms, what was the status of the three laws until the repeal? So if the laws have been lying dormant, how has PM’s announcement changed things? After a year of refusing to yield, why did the government suddenly do so? Will it have a bearing on the protests against other major government decisions that are facing protests? How does the repeal impact the political economy of rural India?
