Farm Laws Repealed, but Ground Reality Still Grim in India

For a diverse country like India a more bottom-up, consensus-building approach to crucial reforms is suited.

Policymaking and implementation are an act of bargaining, negotiation, and compromise that provides an expanded scope for balancing competing interests of diverse stakeholders and coalition groups. However, hubris, overzealousness and political expediency are formidable barriers to effective policy framing and implementation.
