ECONOMIC CHALLENGER  JANUARY-MARCH 2021 ISSUE Farmers'Agitation is 56-day old now demanding repeal of three Agri-Legislations and farmers are adamant in organizing a tractor rally on 26th January on the ring road of Delhi. Farmers are not giving any positive signals for making the ongoing talks fruitful. This is a very perplexing situation for the Indian Government. It is giving bad signals across the world.
