1 min read

In India, tens of thousands of farmers are continuing to protest government laws they fear will drive them out of business.

The government says the reforms, which deregulate agriculture by allowing farmers to sell direct to big businesses – will leave them better off.

One protester, Devilal Dahiya, invited BBC South Asia correspondent Rajini Vaidyanathan to visit his farm in Haryana state.
