Truth Behind the Plan to Hoodwink Farmers
The farmer organisations of the country had already sensed the danger of farm laws. According to a Reporters' Collective report, in the name of doubling the income of farmers, NITI Aayog had formed a task force under the leadership of a person named Sharad Marathe. Interestingly, Marathe runs a software company and has absolutely no experience in farming.

NewsClick spoke to Vijoo Krishnan, General Secretary of All India Kisan Sabha, and Shrigireesh Jalihal of Reporters Collective on this issue.
