Indian farmers block roads, railways over farm bills
Al Jazeera, 26 Sep 2020
Thousands of farmers in India have blocked roads and rail lines to protest against new laws approved earlier this week.
They are worried they will not continue to get guaranteed prices for their grain.
The government wants to loosen rules on who can buy wholesale produce.
Farmers say the changes could allow large private buyers, like supermarket chains, to control the market and drive down prices.
