Farmers in no mood to forgive despite Modi’s U-turn on reforms

New Delhi 20/11:Prime Minister Narendra Modi may have caved in to farmers’ demands that he scraps laws they say threaten their livelihoods.


But the reaction to the shock U-turn in the northern states, where Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) faces key elections next year, has been less than positive, a worrying sign for a leader seeking to maintain his grip on national politics.


In Uttar Pradesh’s Mohraniya, farmer Guru Sevak Singh said that he and others like him lost faith in Modi and his party.


“Today Prime Minister Modi realised that he was committing blunder, but it took him a year to recognise this and only because he now knows farmers will not vote for his party ever again,” said Singh.
