Off Centre: Agrarian Crisis Can Be Described As Civilizational Crisis, Says P Sainath

Acclaimed journalist and Founder-Editor of the People’s Archive of Rural India, P Sainath attributes the existential crisis confronting India’s agrarian society to macro-economic policies set in motion 25 years ago. Talking to Anuradha SenGupta on Off Centre, Sainath makes a case for state intervention in agriculture and says the Modi government, with its shifting positions and policies like demonetisation has only aggravated the assault on agrarian livelihoods. Dismissing the buzz about imminent new initiatives for farmers as political business as usual, Sainath outlines why Parliament must convene a special session if we want a comprehensive, long term fix to this distress. Tune in if you want to understand the issue beyond the competitive politics it generates!
