Say no to ne­olib­eral poli­cies

Down to Earth - - LETTERS -

The cover story "Why farm­ers now dread a nor­mal monsoon" (1-15 July, 2017) of­fers a good anal­y­sis of the rea­sons for the agri­cul­ture cri­sis. Farm­ers are con­sis­tently be­ing pushed to dis­tress. The pol­icy by suc­ces­sive gov­ern­ments al­low­ing im­ports in the years of bumper crops is due to the com­mit­ments made to the World Trade Or­ga­ni­za­tion re­gard­ing im­ports of food grains. Ul­ti­mately, ne­olib­eral poli­cies are the main rea­son for this cri­sis.
