Watch this conversation between ThePrint’s Editor-in-chief Shekhar Gupta and Amul’s managing director R.S. Sodhi, as they discuss farming, farm reforms, the country’s changing consumption habits and Amul’s future business plans at length.

Sodhi argues that the three farm laws passed last year are beneficial for the farmers but the government has failed in communicating their benefits. Politicisation of the issue, coupled with the farmers’ relentless protest, puts the government in a tricky position, he says, pointing out that the government completely backtracking from the reforms may not set the right precedent. Watch the video for the full exchange.
