    Because many are profiting huge from agriculture, whilst people starve to death and nice that you ignored the tax exemptions for farmers.

    Damn you look so hypocritical right now.

    What does that have to do with tractor ownership ? Many of these machines are rented on a hire basis & not owned by individuals. Indian land holdings are typically small & most cannot afford owning tractors.

    If people make profit out of Agriculture, let them.

    Are we discussing Bengal 1943?

    Poor farmers do get tax exemptions & it is helpful to them. How is that a problem?

    Dying of malnutrition is natural now? Yet genocide if the British were ruling at the time? Hmmmm......... If you believe that one I'll tell you where the pot of gold is.
