Farmers Dance in Celebration of Repeal of Laws That Spurred Months of Protest

Celebrations erupted across India on November 19, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the repeal of three farm laws following months of protest, the Times of India reported.

Farmers had protested since last November, calling for a “guaranteed minimum support price (MSP) to ensure procurement of crops at a suitable price,” “the withdrawal of Electricity (Amendment) Bill 2020,” and “an end to the fines and jail sentences imposed for stubble burning,” among other demands, the Hindustan Times reported.
