Explain the nature of farmers’ movement in India.
The history of farmers’ movement in India dates to the time of our independence struggle. It was inspired by the thoughts of Mahatma Phule, Justice Ranade and Mahatma Gandhi against the anti-agriculturist policies of the British. It has continued to be active and became more effective after the Green Revolution which increased the economic gap between rich farmers and poor farmers. Some of the demands of the farmers’ movements are:
• Appropriate prices for agricultural goods
• Industry status for Agriculture

• Debt relief and debt cancellation
• National policy for Agriculture
