Modernisation in agri sector is imperative, says Indian PM

Modernisation in the agriculture sector is the need of the hour, said Indian PM Narendra Modi, asserting that embracing modern practices in the farming sector is indispensable as in every aspect of life, newness as well as modernisation is essential.

The PM’s call for adopting new practices in agriculture comes at a time when hundreds of peasants have been camping at New Delhi’s border points since November 2020 demanding that the federal government repeal the three contentious farm laws.

However, the government has maintained that these reform laws will increase farmers’ income by attracting investments and allow them to sell their crops anywhere across the nation at best prices.
