India is a country where two or three protests happen every year or two. At present, we all are seeing the farmer’s protests against the three agricultural bills. The bills are destined to improve the productivity of the farmers. However, there seems to be no end to these protests happening all around the capital of India. The protests against the government signify the moral rights of the farmers against urban machination trends. The riot has all the spices to reveal the actual intent of the regime governance of Mr Narendra Modi. Below, we will learn some potential outcomes of farmer’s protests that could manifest in a short time.
Some Potential Consequences of Farmer’s Protests
As we have discussed earlier, the country always goes with two or three protests each year due to the government’s intervention in public affairs. Some of them are positive, and some of them are negative. However, the farmer’s protest against the three bills is surely a unique one because the government has now interrupted the rights and basic needs of the hard-working farmers. Although the government is now implementing its usual strategy of referring farmers to Khalistans, it seems that there is little or no effect of such branding. The self-assured demands of the farmers have enough power to revert back any sort of political tricks and strategies. Earlier, the demands to end the three bills on agriculture were going smoothly. However, now things have changed. Devious characters have entered into the protests and they are harming cellular towers in many areas. All the fears that are occurring through the protests are more about the government’s regime rather than their demands. Earlier, the protest included concerns about the end of MSP and privatization of the whole agriculture system. However, the farmers have added new concerns of rising educational expenses and the overall environment of trying hard of punishing the innocent farmers by snatching their land. These concerns are enough to conclude that the farmer’s protests are more about their own basic needs and rights rather than any political interference by the opposition against the government.
The farmers have a moral power behind the protest and due to that power, they are able to start a straightforward critique that has joined offensive disregard of the leadership of the prime minister, Mr Narendra Modi. Farmers have already hurt his efficiency, held him wrong, and are totally against his thoughts of supporting the peasants and farmers.
One can easily say by looking at the farmer’s protest against the government that doubts have arisen that it is losing its legitimacy. The opposition parties also have gathered the courage to help the farmers to hurt the authorization led by the Modi’s government. Although the oppositions are fueling courage to the farmers against the government, the citizen-farmers are the ones who are giving reliability to these parties.
While the lack of legitimacy is opening ways for fresh narratives as well as opposition in a democracy, it could additionally give way to the ominous instance of a system of governance stripped of parts of popularity, approval, and of course, legitimacy. This prevailing regime could come up with a model of a state stripped from the community. In addition to this, rather than implementing its motives on the farmers, it can start again by attempting to add several sections and progress towards a way that can more aggressively and readily overlook any doubts on securing legitimacy.
Are There Still Expectations?
At the latest, there are still hopes that the progress of the protest can reach an agreement. Talking about the government, except it shifts to its current state, is willing to perform limited reforms to the prevailing marketing rules and regulations on CPR and MSP. Yet, the difference between the representatives from the protesting farmers and the government does not seem to come to an end. If anyone among the government and the representatives desires to progress beyond the deadlock, one should recall that improvement has happened in several areas after the middle of the year. The government is striving to end the middleman in the whole buying and selling process of the crops and the farmers are doubting that due to the bills, companies will take away their land and will deprive them of their basic needs.
In summary, we have seen the consequences and the potential outcomes of the farmer’s protest. One unique thing about the farmer’s protest against the government is that it is getting intervened by some of the best educational entities. Recently, a professor from Harvard University cited that legislations need to be examined extensively. We can come across other discussions from all around the world about this protest. Still, there cannot be any end to the protest until the Supreme Court firmly comes with a decision. We will definitely see positive possible outcomes of farmer’s protest and the court’s intervention will bring an end to this as soon as possible.
