Prime Minister Narendra Modi asserted on Sunday that the farming reforms have opened doors of new opportunities for peasants and bestowed on them new rights.

In his monthly ‘Mann Ki Baat’ broadcast, Modi said the farm laws have begun mitigating the troubles of farmers in a short period of time since their enactment in September. He even  cited an example of a farmer in Maharashtra,  who used the provisions provided in the Acts to get the money a trader had promised, but not paid   him in time.

New dimensions related to agriculture and related fields have emerged as the recently enacted farm reforms have opened doors of new possibilities for farmers, he said.

A low-pressure area has formed over the South Andaman Sea, adjoining areas of South-East Bay of Bengal and Equatorial Indian Ocean, almost the same region where very severe cyclone ‘Nivar’ went onto to cross the Puducherry coast and neighbourhood a few days ago.

Three people were killed in Tamil Nadu, over 1,000 trees uprooted and some low-lying areas marooned, due to cyclone Nivar.
