The farmers are trying to be heard and the Prime Minister should listen. Why with even the media firmly on his side has the Prime Minister not been able to convince the protesting farmers that their protest is wrong? The truth is that arrogance has been the defining characteristic of Modi’s second term as Prime Minister. Could it be because, in emulation of the Prime Minister, they have decided that they know best what is good for the people? An alternative Republic Day parade in Delhi next week could be the beginning of something that bodes ill for Modi unless he resolves to listen to the voices of the people.
