Satish Acharya also draws on PM Modi’s apology, and highlights that he did not acknowledge the demise of over 700 farmers during the year-long protests against the laws.

Manjul depicts a farmer calmly taking all the labels thrown at him over the course of the protest, and quotes Modi’s speech, in which he said maybe there was something lacking in his own approach, which is why he couldn’t convince a section of farmers about the laws’ benefits.

R Prasad | Economic Times

R. Prasad takes a dig at Modi’s U-turn on the farm laws, depicting the PM following his own ‘Mann ki Baat‘ on television, to be followed by the age-old agriculture programme ‘Krishi Darshan‘. The allusion is to the fact that farmers didn’t align with the PM’s wishes.
