India farmers: Modi U-turn on reforms which sparked major protests

After a year of protests and often violent unrest, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has suddenly announced he’s repealing three controversial farm laws.

The reforms were brought in last year in an effort to overhaul India’s agricultural system, but it brought tens of thousands of farmers out onto the streets, claiming it put their livelihoods at risk.
