Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government will push to repeal controversial farm laws when parliament reconvenes Monday, to quell protests from a crucial vote bank that show little sign of abating with key state elections due next year.

As lawmakers debate this bill and other legislation, including a ban on private cryptocurrencies during the session, the farmers have vowed to keep pushing ahead with their protests to press the government for guaranteed crop prices.

"BJP has lost the appetite to implement measures that might face stiff popular opposition,” said Shilan Shah, senior India economist at Capital Economics, referring to Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party. "Any progress that is made will be in implementing less-contentious reforms.”
