Watch | Kisan Sansad and the Question of Farmers' Political Presence

Yogendra Yadav, Joginder Singh Ugraha, Darshan Pal, Yudhvir Singh and Devinder Sharma analyse the Kisan Sansad and what it has achieved.

Listen to this article:

From July 22 to August 9, the farmers’ leaders had organised a Kisan Sansad (parliament) at Jantar Mantar. It ran parallel to the parliament’s Monsoon Session. Each day, 200 farmers’ representatives deliberated on farm laws and other issues like ‘MSP as a legal right’, the Swaminathan Report, and even introduced a ‘no-confidence motion’ against the Modi government.

But what did this symbolic Sansad achieve? To answer this question we have Yogendra Yadav along with other leaders like Joginder Singh Ugraha, Darshan Pal, Yudhvir Singh and agri-expert Devinder Sharma on the show for a deep dive into the political facets of the farmers’ revolution.
