This week we look at Sudhir Chaudhary’s hriday parivartan towards the protesting farmers. Well, almost! The benevolence fades out quickly as Sudhir rehashes an old trope to serve a new piping hot conspiracy on “Khalistani funding” for the farmer protests.

These happy farmers, it turns out, are the same ones mentioned in a document that central minister Prakash Javadekar’s media manager had sent out to multiple journalists as “success stories”.
