In this video, Abhi and Niyu explain the three farm bills – 2020 in a simple manner. The government believes that the agricultural reforms will give farmers the freedom that they deserve. But many farmers in Punjab and Haryana have come on the streets to protest. This contrast is startling for many Indians, just like us. On a factual level, it is important for us to understand the reforms and make up our own minds on whether they are positive or not.
