NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday resisted calls for the repeal of farm reforms that have ignited the biggest protests by farmers in years around the national capital, saying they were being misled and that deregulation would benefit them. Speaking at a public rally during a visit to his political constituency of Varanasi in northern India, Modi dismissed the fears as misplaced. The farm sector contributes nearly 15% of India’s $2.9 trillion economy and employs around half its 1.3 billion people. But Rahul Gandhi, the leader of the main opposition Congress party, said the new laws would benefit big business and accused Modi of crony capitalism. “Our farmers are standing up against the black laws, they have reached Delhi leaving their farms and families behind.

India’s Ministry of External Affairs said a protest was lodged with Pakistan’s charge d’affaires in New Delhi. Tension between the nuclear-armed rivals has sharpened since last August, when Modi’s government ended the autonomy of its only Muslim-majority region. India will hold district-level elections this month in Jammu and Kashmir, the first such exercise there since the federal government took away the area’s statehood more than a year ago.

Modi followed that up with a phone call to congratulate Biden and reaffirm his commitment to a strategic partnership between the two big democracies, Modi said on Twitter late on Tuesday. “Prime Minister Modi warmly congratulated President-elect Biden on his election, describing it as a testament to the strength and resilience of democratic traditions in the United States,” the Indian foreign ministry said. India and the United States drew closer during Trump’s presidency as both countries aimed to counter China’s expanding military and economic influence in the region.
