Congress high command has sown seeds of a Punjab-like crisis in Rajasthan. Their compromise formula weakens Ashok Gehlot government by creating dual power centres.

MSP demand unreasonable. Farming needs reform through cooperation, not maximalist posturing
Samyukta Kisan Morcha’s demand for a legal guarantee for MSP is totally unreasonable. SKM has won a famous victory against Modi government’s farm laws even though they made economic sense.
